    Dear SP5 Jimmie David Hinton, 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, Sir

    Curt Carter

    Jimmie was one of my best friends during his first tour in Vietnam Oct 68 - Oct 69 when we were both members of the 190th Assault Helicopter Company. I do hope someone views this page and sees my rememberance. Jimmie was funny, he was a good soldier, and he truly was a hero. He talked so much about his school days in Batesville, MS and 'The Rogues' and football, his two greatest loves. He never told me that he didn't have much family. It hurts so much to know the knucklehead found a way to get back to Vietnam and get himself killed. He didn't have to. I have a picture of him in Vietnam, clowning around as usual. If anyone wants to talk about him and to know what he was like when I knew him, feel free to e-mail me.
