If I should die...remembrances for CAPT. David Arthur PETERS, USA...who made the ultimate sacrifice!

If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.

He was my OCS TAC Officer

David was my first TAC Officer in the FA OCS. I believe he had just completed Jump School prior and was very proud of his paratroop status. Back then, I could copy thing pretty well free-hand. He had me paint a set of Jump Wings on the floor in front of his desk. This way he could consul Candidates, while they were in the "front leaning rest position" (push up) with the wings in front of their face.

David was reassigned prior to our graduation. When I got "in-country" RVN in March 68 and assigned to the 1/77th FA, 1ST CAV, I learned he was also assigned to the Battalion. He was killed prior to any opportunity to re-introduce myself. I believe David died in a helicopter crash, along with the Infantry Commander he was giving fire support to.

To all my fallen comrades, who are "Forever Young".

Cowboy

You were an OSU Cowboy we cared for a great deal. It was a pleasure to have known you and your family so many years ago. We all still grieve when we think of the loss.
