Thank you, James, for your extraordinary Valor on the airstrip at Song Be.
Where others hesitated, you, under fire and with total disregard for your own personal safety, gave aid to and removed the wounded from a certain death situation. Your action was above and beyond the call of duty.
Thank you for the lives you saved and your inspiration.
A memorial initiated by a friend,
Thank you, for this wonderful tribute
I had never seen that picture before,
I cannot thank you enough for remembering
I feel better knowing Jim had such
All of you, and our current military
I never got to meet my Uncle Jim but my mom told me a lot of good things about him. Today I wish I knew him and if anyone knew him I would really like it if you would email me and let me know. Thank you very much.
