Proud of my cousin

David loved his family very much. I remember right before he went into the marines he hitchhiked across the country to visit with all the relatives. When he arrived at my home in Colorado he had a cardboard box with a turtle in it that he had picked up along the road somewhere. Being a child at the time, I thought he was the coolest older cousin ever. I think of him often and wonder about all the lives he would have touched if he had survived.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC David George Anderson, 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.

With respect, Sir

Curt Carter

Never Forgotten

Few know that Dave and his friend Charlie joined the Marines under the buddy plan. They trained together, went to Vietnam together and died together. It's one of those tragic stories that cuts deep and leaves permanent scars on those that knew and loved him. The two buddys weren't in country long before they were being sent as replacements to Khe Sahn. Khe Sahn had been under siege for a long period of time when their C123 made it's landing approach that March day. The plane was waved off because there was another small aircraft with no radio trying to land at the same time. Dave & Charlie's plane never made it back around to land. The enemy shot it out of the sky. There are conflicting reports of how may died in that crash, but most agree that it's close to fifty. Dave and Charlie were not buried in Montana. It appears that most the members of that flight to Khe Sahn that day are buried in a common plot in a national cemetery in St. Louis, MO. They served together and they died together. May their memories never fade. Rest in peace with the warriors.

40 Years today

I first met David when we were in the seventh grade. We met in wood shop and instantly became friends. Since I did not make friend easily, David made a big impact with me. Even though we eventually went our own ways, he will always be with me in thought. I am sure that he lived the Corp motto of Semper Fidelis, which is Latin for Always Faithful.

Semper Fi, buddie……..
