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.

Rest in Peace, Soldier.
My father had the same middle and last name. I am doing an assignment for a class as I type this and I have been touched by your heroic service to our country. Rest in peace, and God bless. I look forward to meeting you in Heaven.

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.

I just want you to know you are
not forgotten. You gave the ultimate
sacrifice, your life for what you believed
in. Sleep well my friend, and thank you
for protecting the freedoms we enjoy
today
