"Petty Officer Dickerson,
I think of your and your family's sacrifice often. As I remember the newspaper account of your bravery, I can see that the story as told on this site is not correct. The paper stated that your convoy came under small arms fire early in the war and your truck in particular. The original story told of how, even after being shot, you used your truck to ram the attacker's vehicle. You are a hero, sir. Thank you for your heroism. It shall not be forgotten."
Keith Hutto of Dodge County, Ga

"Neither among animals nor among foreign races do we find courage to be a characteristic of the most fierce, but rather of the gentler and lion-like dispositions.... One cannot imagine a wolf or any other wild animal engaging in a struggle against noble danger; but that is what a good man will do"
