  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 12/17/13 - by Curt Carter ccarter02@earthlink.net
    Dear PFC James Randolph Hurst, 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

    I knew Jim in vietnam. Jim you were a great guy. Your smile helped us and your laugh gave us strength. August 69 was a bad month. We lost too many. Just wanted to let you know you are thought of and always will be.

  • MY DAD

    Posted on 8/8/08 - by MICHELLE HUNT THATNURS23@AOL.COM
    HE DIED SO VERY LONG AGO
    JUST A YOUNG MAN OF 20 WAS HE.
    IN A FOREIGN LAND FULL OF STRANGERS
    NOT FULLY AWARE OF ALL THE DANGERS.
    FIGHTING IN A WAR THAT NO ONE COULD WIN
    HE LOST HIS LIFE AND THAT WAS THE END.
    I WAS ONLY A SMALL CHILD ON THAT FATEFUL DAY
    WITH NO MEMORY OF HIM OR THOUGHT OF DISMAY.
    I HAVE JUST A FEW PICTURES AND THAT IS ALL
    OF A MAN I DONT KNOW, SO HANDSOME AND TALL.
    I'D LOVE TO KNOW MORE BUT NO ONE WILL BOTHER
    THIS SPECIAL MAN-A STRANGER TO ME-WAS ONCE MY FATHER.
    HE APPEARED TO LOVE ME IN PICTURES SO SWEET.
    OH HOW I WISH THIS MAN I COULD MEET!
    I LONG TO SEE HIM AND HOLD HIM TIGHT
    TELL HIM I LOVE HIM AND TALK ALL NIGHT.
    THIS CANNOT BE TIL I REACH HEAVEN ABOVE
    WHERE I WILL KISS HIS FACE AND TELL HIM OF MY DEEP LOVE.
    HOW COULD I KNOW AFTER 23 YEARS
    HE WOULD STAY ON MY MIND AND BRING ME TEARS?
    THEY ARE TEARS OF JOY AND SORRW TOO
    BECAUSE I DONT KNOW HIM, BUT GUESS WHAT DAD? I LOOK LIKE YOU!
    I WANT TO KISS HIS FACE AND HOLD HIS HAND,
    I'D TELL HIM "DAD, I UNDERSTAND.
    YOU HAD TO GO, YOU LEFT TOO SOON. WHEN I GET TO HEAVEN, I'LL LOOK FOR YOU.
    I'LL HAVE SOMEONE WITH ME I'LL WANT YOU TO SEE.
    HE'S THE ONE WHO LOVED AND TOOK CARE OF ME.
    WHEN YOU MEET HIM, YOU'LL LOVE HIM TOO,
    FOR HE IS MY DADDY AS WELL AS YOU.

  • An Uncle I could never know

    Posted on 11/8/06 - by Mackenzie M. Worthley
    I am very sad that I did not have the chance of meeting him before he was lost to battle. My mom was only ten. I used to see him in my dreams when I was young. I wish he could see his son Jimmy grow up, and his kids. So much loss over war? And for what? What did we gain from this?

  • He made us all Proud

    Posted on 11/7/06 - by Scott Dilbeck sdilbeck@bellsouth.net
    Randy was one of my favorite cousins. I was only 9 years old, but I remember how proud we all were that he was a strong military man at such a young age. He would would always write to me, and send the coolest stuff from where he was stationed. I think of him often, and I will never forget him.

    I will always remember you, my tall and handsome brown eyed son. You were always such a joy from the day you were born. You were such a wonderful and loving son, always trying to take care of everyone, making sure no one got left behind. You are always walking in the hall ways of my memory.

    My head aches just trying to recall at least one memory but I was too small. Sometimes you're with me or so I have felt.I was always missing you but didn't know why, you were only a face in my memory that I now call daddy, a face that I loved, and still miss so.
