Uncle David

To my dear uncle that I barely remember, as I was only 3 yrs old when you were killed in 1968. Please know generations after you, still know you and are proud of your service and sacrifice. You have a special place in my heart; you were so young and gave your life for our country. My children, Jessica and Joshua know who you are and have seen your pictures. They studied the Vietnam War in school. Jessica honored you with your picture on a project. I have been to DC to honor you at “The Wall”. I was proud but heartbroken to see your name. I left you a flower. Mom says you had a lot of Grandpa in you. I can see that in pictures! I look forward to the day we meet again with Jesus. Love, your niece, Amy

My Brother

Your big sister Janet thinks of you everyday. It has been 50 years since you have been gone. You would of been 71 years old on 10/16/2018. Born 10/16/1947.
Mother is gone now this year and we saw your name on the Wall together in 1987. Mother said, God put your name just at the right level for me to see and touch because I am not very tall. (David's mom - Oma Wilcox was only 4' 11")
Donald, mom and I would visit you quite often at the cemetery to place flowers throughout the seasons. Now you and mom are together. I love you and until we meet again. Janet L Wilcox 10/2018

Remembering An American Hero

Dear LCPL David John Wilcox, 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
