Fond Memories

My dad tells me of his fond memories of this young man. My dad talks about him a lot. He even talks about Daryl and my dad putting together an old motorcycle and my dad misses his friendship. Though it has been 53 years, my dad still has a hard time with Daryl’s death in Vietnam.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear CPL Daryl La Don Stith, 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, Sir

Curt Carter

You will always be remembered

Daryl was an incredible young man. Let me tell you a little something about him. One of many memories I cherish dearly. We met the summer of 1964. I was 14 he was 16 he rode past my house on his motorcycle as I was crossing the street. I looked up at him and he looked at me dang he was so handsome! After that for about a week he kept riding by slowly until one day he stopped. My life changed in that moment. He was my first love. One day I was babysitting when I heard a tapping at the window. I looked out and there he was! I opened the window and looked down at my handsome hero. I was Juliet he was my Romeo. He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. My 17 year old knight on a motorcycle. We shared many times of laughter and love. But unfortunately it ended one of my biggest regrets all these many years later. He ended up with a beautiful young girl named Becky before he joined the Marines and died. But I have never forgotten my handsome first love.
