Stories

I am honored to be the first to post a memorial and pictures for David Betchel, not only because he is a falled hero, but because I have a son named David. My David was named after my mother's brother, who died unexpected at an early age, complications of having had polio. ( In my book, all Davids are the greatest. ) This David's name appears on The Wall so close to an adopted extended family member, Edward Leonard Greene. This David and Edward passed on the same day in Novemeber 1967 and are not forgotten. I envision that Angels escorted you all home as brothers, representatives of a great nation under God. Flowers for you. Much appreciation. April Dayns RN Sacramento, CA.
