Thinking of a hero today

I didn’t know David Whitehall but I recently acquired a note that his parents sent to their friends in appreciation of the sympathy the friends had expressed. His parents described him as “being full of confidence and had no fear at all. We can be thankful for that.”
My deepest sympathy to his family and friends.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear 2LT David Hugh Whitehill, 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

Honoring this Individual March 22, 2014

I have no relation to David H Whitehill but today I visited the Vietnam Veterans' Moving Memorial in Santa Fe, NM. I was born in Sept 1964 so I was very very young during the time of the Vietnam Conflict & have no memory of that; but today as I walked along the Wall and scanned some of the names by eyes came to this name (David H Whitehill) and I wanted to honor at least one person who was listed on the Wall; it is hard to express the emotions I felt today visiting the Memorial; sadness, grief, holiness, but most of all gratitude & reverence. May those listed on the Memorial never be forgotten.
