    Dear SFC James Bernard L Gordon Jr, 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

    Thank you for sacrificing your tomorrows. May God bless you and keep you safe in His arms.

    Those of us who remember the Vietnam War are carrying the torch of remembrance for our fallen, our MIA's, and our POW's.

    We are forever indebted to you, SFC Gordon.

    My websites are dedicated to our Vietnam vets and their families. Please visit.

    If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine... Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.

  • Thank You

    I attend Gridley High School in Gridley, IL and I am completing this remembrance as part of the Gridley High School Posting Project. We have so many blessing in this country that we take for granted! We owe our freedom to heroes like you who dedicated your life to preserve freedom! Your bravery and devotion will never be forgotten! Thank you!
