Dennis Cannon

Denny was a great friend in Vietnam. We were alway together in the field and going on ambush patrols or riffing the jungles in Cambodia!
Denny and Tim Owenbey And Kim Widmer dies the same day but tripping an automatic ambush we had set a few days before.
You couldn’t out do Tim or Denny they were always willing to be the first to volunteer and always went above and beyond no matter how dangerous. I had only met Kim that morning it was his first day in the field with us. As long as I’m living they will never be forgotten !!
Kids but really men!!

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Dennis Charles Cannan, 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

Your Angel Day

Mere words cannot express my thanks to you for your service to our country and the ultimate sacrifice that you made so that others might have their freedom.

Although there are others that feel the loss of your life was in vain and that the Vietnam War was a senseless war I am one American who feels that what you did for your country was not in vain but has been and will always be an influence for good for generations to come.

Thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart for standing up for what was right and for paying the ultimate price.

In your honor today on your Angel Day I leave this short poem for you:

“There is not greater love than this.
There is not a greater gift that can ever be given.
To be willing to die, so another might live.
There is not greater love than this.”
~ Steven Curtis Chapman
