Fellow trooper of Charlie Company, 2/7 Cav: I only knew you for a very short period of time. You came to our gun squad in the mountains. Within minutes we were called to duty. I was very close to you when the grenade went off. You took the brunt of the blast that killed you. Several of us survived with minor injuries. You saved my life that day and I hardly knew your name. I can't forget you or that day. It is etched in my mind forever. Albert Guarnieri Jr, 42 Manning Street North Providence, RI 02911. mypitstop66@verizon.net.

I will Never Forget David. I will never forget the day we said goodbye. It was the day you left. We both were young and the thought of never seeing each other again never crossed between us. I have no pictures of you to look at, but when I close my eyes I see you standing in front of me holding my hand. You were my first love and will always and forever be in my heart. I will always hear your last words to me, "I love you too". And yes David, I do too. Donna Carpenter, Hickory NC 28601, danicarae2@yahoo.com.
