    Dear PFC Jim Dickson,
    Thank you for your service as an Infantryman. Yesterday was the 43rd anniversary of the last battle of the war. It has been too long, and it's about time for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

    Dear PFC Jim Lee Dickson, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter

    Jim graduated from Burnt River High School, Unity Oregon. I'm not sure which year it was. Beside his picture, is the quote, "I plan on being a rancher."

    He was born June 3, 1949 in Ontario, Oregon, the son of Paul and Verna Dickson. Jim had a sister, Ella Rae. Jim's father died in 1966.

    In high school, he participated in Football, Basketball and Baseball, all four years.

    He enlisted in the US Army June 10, 1968 and served with the 506 Infantry, part of the 101st Airborne Division. On February 26, 1969, while serving in Viet Nam, Jim was killed by a "booby-trap," which also wounded four other Currahees. He had been in country just a little over three months. He was 19 years old.

    God rest your soul, Currahee!
