Remembering An American Hero

Dear LCPL David Theodore Bryant, 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

The Trenton Evening Times - September 15, 1967

Slain Marine Never
Saw His Daughter

"He was always doing things for somebody else. Everything he did had to be the best."
The words were spoken about Lance Cpl. David T. Bryant of 18 Winder Avenue, whose wife has received word he was killed in Vietnam.
"What can I say about him/" asked his aunt, Mrs. Sarah Watterman of New York City. "He was so affectionate. His aim was perfection. He wanted so badly to finish college."
The corporal enlisted in the Marines May 13, 1966. He was with the First Battalion of the First Marine Division. He left for Vietnam November 12, 1966.
Corporal Bryant, 20, was married to the former Jacqueline Diane Keys. He had a 2 1/2-month-old daughter, Andrea Nicole, whom he never saw.
His mother-in-law, Mrs. Mary Keys of Trenton, said, "Everytime he wrote he would say he wanted to come home to his Princess. He called the baby his Princess and Sweetness. We always enjoyed having him at our house. He was such a well-behaved child."
She added that her daughter dated Corporal Bryant for three years before they were married. Born in Trenton, he attended Willet and Rowan elementary schools, Hamilton High School, Central State College in Ohio and night school at Trenton State College.
He had been employed by the New Jersey Department of Labor and Industry as a mail clerk. He wanted to become an accountant.
Corporal Bryant was the son of Mr.and Mrs. William Bryant of 602 Parkinson Avenue.
His wife learned about his death Tuesday evening. The couple's pastor, the Rev. John Wilson of St. Phillip's Baptist Church, accompanied Marine officials.
Other survivors include two brothers, William Jr. and Samuel; a sister, Paula Lynn; his maternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. David McCutchen of South Carolina; his paternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Enoch Bryant of Trenton; four other aunts; three uncles; and several cousins, two of whom are serving in Vietnam.
Local arrangements are under the direction of the Anderson Funeral Service.

Semper Fidelis, Marine!
