Tribute to LCpl. David Russell

I was David's squad leader and was behind him when he was hit with a mortar round and small arms fire, taking his life. I had been with B-1-7 before being assigned to B-1-3 in January of 1966. I helped train David as a M-60 machine gunner. I remember he was gung-ho. I only knew him for about 3 months and have always wished we could have gotten to know one another better. He gave his life in service to his country and helping the people of South Vietnam. He died with valor and deserves our greatest respect. RIP David Russell, I will see you later.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear LCPL David Gordon Russell, 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
