Judy and Family, On behalf of the 1st NC Vol's/11th NCT I wish to extend our deepest sympathy for your loss. Dave was a valued member of this organization and will be truly missed by all. His Sutler Impression at Ft. Macon State Park educated (and entertained) countless spectators over the years on the life and times of the common soldier of the Civil War. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and family. Bob Berg
