Remembering an American Hero

Dear SP4 Delno Billy Collingsworth, 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

Remembrance

Delno was one of 13 children - 12 of whom were living in 1966. Delno was a quiet young man who smiled often. He was also very shy, he had a soft way of speaking. He grew up on a farm between Mitchell and Bedford. When Delno drowned in 1966, he had 11 living brothers and sisters.



As I was no longer married to his brother at the time of Delno's death, I can't tell you more. I only knew Delno a short time but can say he was a good man and missed to this day.
