Young Lady,
My name is David R. Alexander, I'm from Ky also. Your father was my Tac Officer in Ft. Benning, Ga in 1966. I have met your mother but I'm sure she wouldn't remember me. I went to Vietnam in May of 1967 and was with the 1st Cav Div. I had a opertunity to see your dad for a few minutes just after I got there as I was going out on a chopper and just happen to see him. We talked for a few minutes and told each other we would meet after the war. I'm from Murray, Ky. not very far from Providence.
I have looked for you and your mother for over 30 years and could not find any trace.
I want so much to tell you about the things I knew about your dad.
He was a wonderful man and a kind person that took me while I was in OCS and got me through it.
My e-mail address is
PLEASE E-MAIL ME AS SOON AS YOU CAN. I would just love to tell you what I knew of him.
God Bless you and your mother.
David R. Alexander
OCS Class 52
