WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER

I grew up in David's hometown of Melrose, MA. David was 8 years older then me. I was in the same parochial school grade, as his sister Sandra. I was an altar boy, and the first funeral Mass I ever served, or even attended, was David's, on January 22nd, 1968. It had a lifelong lasting impact on me. When I was planning on visiting the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in 2018, I knew that I had to find David's name, which I did. Panel 35E Row 10. I contacted David's brother Jeff, to let him know I would be visiting there. I met up with him after I returned home. I served in the U.S. Navy from 1976-1981. I missed the Vietnam War period by 1 year. I've always felt a connection with David, & just want to take this opportunity to thank him for his ultimate sacrifice, to go and fight, where his country asked him to. I also want to thank all of the other veterans, who served our country, defending it. Especially those who were KIA, and their families. Jimmy Tierney, Beverly, MA

Remembering an American Hero

Dear American Hero,

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for the ultimate sacrifice that you 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. And please know that men and women like you have stepped forward to defend our country yet again, showing the same love for country and their fellow Americans that you did- you would be proud.

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

Curt Carter (son of Sgt Ardon William Carter, 101st Airborne, February 4, 1966, South Vietnam)
