Thank you for your service.

Dear Richard, I met you several times as I was a childhood friend of your youngest brother Dwayne. I've been to the "Wall" a couple times. When I'm there, I go to your name right away. Even though we were not close friends, it's an emotional moment for me because I knew both brothers Keith & Dwayne quite well as kids. Rest In Peace! You will forever be an American hero!

In Remembrance

Richard,
I never knew you, but our families were once neighbors and thus I knew of your ultimate sacrifice. I have thought of you over the years and how devastating the loss of you has surely been for your family, and on a day when you and they would have been celebrating your life. Recently, I visited D.C. and the memorial that bears your name and the names of too many other young men. I’m sad for the life you did not get to live and that your family did not get to share with you. Thinking of you on this Memorial Day; God Bless you.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 Richard John Turbitt 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.

With respect, Sir

Curt Carter

Never Forgotten

Dear Uncle Richard,
Although we never had the chance to meet, you are always in my thoughts and prayers. This past June our whole family was reunited. I was married June 22, 2013 and the traveling Vietnam Memorial was on display in our town that weekend. Uncle Dwayne and his wife drove out for our celebration and dad and mom came up from Colorado. No one knows when the last time all 3 Turbitt brothers were together. There are no words to explain how I felt knowing you were there too. Thank you for the sacrifice you have given.
Love,
Your Niece Melissa
