Sgt Darrel Gene Pierce Darrel is my cousin and I remember many summers spent. He lives on in my heart and in the photos of my mind. Thank you again for this and thank you for your dedication to our country.

Hi Darrel -another Veterans Day the people in this country genuinely seem to support the troops past and present. Anyway, just another reminder that you are not forgotten I think of you everyday and for some reason I cant forget that day in November of 69'. Rest easy, brother.

We were in the same platoon
9379 Lakeridge Dr.
Bloomington, In. 47401
Rest in peace, my brother.
We were reinforcing a firefight in progress and a heading towards the treeline across a dry paddy. The gooks set off a command detonated mine of some kind. Me, SSgt. Pierce and a couple other guys went down. One of our choppers (D Trp. 3/4 Cav. 25th Centaurs)medevaced the two of us out right away. Darrel died on the helo being worked on by one of our medics. He was one of the nicest guys Ive ever known and the type who wouldnt ask one of his troops to do something he would`nt. Darrel, you are not forgotten. RIP,Brother. You truly were a hero.

Darrel Watching your life leave you on that Dust-Off so long ago I've thought about it every day. Twenty years later I contacted your family (sister) and sent a couple of pictures I had. What a waste that you didn't get to live the wonderful life you deserved. Peace.
