Because you LIVED

Dear David - I met your friend, Brian VanderHeyden, a couple weeks ago. He recalled you so fondly and it was hard for him still to think of you, all these years later. I have researched your story to share it with residents this Memorial Day at the town ceremony. You lived on Frogtown Road with your 4 sisters, all your life. There are two wonderful articles on you that ran in the NC Advertiser about your father's visit to see you during the Tet Offensive and your second tour as a combat photographer. Your name is inscribed on the Town Hall Plaque and at the base of the Wayside Cross, at God's Acre. What an extraordinary life and we thank God that you LIVED, so that you helped to secure the blessings of a free nation. From, a grateful resident of your town and citizen.

The Best Way I Can Honor You

My name is Robert Howard Potter and I teach English at Canterbury School. In your honor, I offer an elective course in the fall titled "Literature of The Vietnam Conflict". As long as I teach here and students are sitting in the same classrooms where you once sat, I will do my best to make them aware of the conflict that took your life. The first thing I do every fall is introduce the class to you. Rest in peace.
