Neighbor / Someone I looked up to

I was only 9 yrs old when David went Vietnam. I always looked up to David. My older brother was in country when David got killed. Shook up the whole neighborhood…. Still think about him a lot over 40 years later. For a 9 year old he was the Coolest guy I knew….

THANKS

To all who have posted a message here to my brother Cpl. David Toler I truly appreciate you honoring him. He is still greatly missed. His son who is 37 now is getting married in May. I miss David so much still, growing together, I was 15 when he left us and I have spent most of my life without him but his memory never fades from me or our family. My son was wia in Iraq in 04 and he is my only child. A Marine who is now home in KY. He came home from med hold Sept. 15 2005. David died on Sept. 15th. Both being in country 2 months before being wounded.

Thank you all for honoring my brother!
