Cousins

Born one year apart. You died 10 days before I was wounded. Lost three of my platoon that day. Don't know how I survived. Had I died we would be on the same wall only a few lines apart. Semper Fi my cousin.

We finally found you, Marine ! Now, we pay you full honor - your USNA Class.

You raised your right hand I-Day at USNA, 30 June, 1965, and joined the Class of 1969.Within three months, you had contracted double pneumonia and, were regrettably, unable to keep up with studies and unforgiving physical demands of plebe indoctrination. You left quietly with but no option. But, you felt compelled to serve your country again - once fully well, You joined the U.S. Marines. So sadly, we now remember you as a patriot warrior and hero.
The Class now knows, after half a century passed, that you gave your last full measure in Viet Nam.But, sir, a hero's welcome and memory we do now give you. Your selfless sacrifice for country is not lost to your mates of 1969.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC David Dawson Peppin Jr, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter
