    MSG Hussey was my Father's Platoon Sgt in the 82nd AB in the 1960s. My father has spoken about MSG.Hussey and his awesome leadership many times in my youth. My father said Msg. Hussey training and mentoring helped him survive his one year tour in Vietnam and have a successful 20 year military career. Your name is mentioned every holiday at our family dinner table, it like my sister and I know you even though we never met you. MSG. Hussey thank you for your service and your sacrifice for our nation.

  • My platoon sergeant

    Posted on 2/6/15 - by MSG VASQUEZ (RETIRE)
    First of all I can't believe no else from Charlie company has posted a remembrance of our platoon sergeant. In January of 1965, I was assigned to the 1/504 C company 3rd platoon under SFC HUSSEY. I always wonder what happen to him and then one day I saw his name on a head stone at the 82nd AIRBORNE DIVISION MUSEUM. He was a just and fair sergeant. The main reason I can't for get him is the night that he ask for three volunteers to guard a sergeant to transport another sergeant who had been bitten on the head by a tarantula to a field aid station. It wouldn't have been so bad for me if I wasn't bounce out of the jeep and dragged over a plowed sugar cane field. Rest in peace and I thank you for your faithful service to this great nation of ours even if it is not just or equal.

  • To a Grandfather I never knew

    Posted on 5/25/14
    Sometimes I wonder what life would be like for my family if you or my grandmother had lived...But now I am old enough to know that that is the tragedy of life, the what if's. Instead I choose to reflect on the now. How I now have two beautiful children. How lucky I am that my parents are still alive & well. How blessed I am to have my sisters. And how happy you would have been to meet them, the legacies of your life & how even in death you inspired us all. Xoxo
    Your granddaughter,
    Jennifer

  • It's been 46years!!!!!!!!!!

    Came to visit your remembrance today. Didn't see your name among those who were killed on the main page. Wish I could say things have improved in this country, but than goodness from your and Mother's strong influence of honesty, integrity, and honor, the traits that enable me to share honest feeling based on actions and perceptions, and on some known facts.

    Wish that I could honestly say that race relations has improved in this country, in a few ways it has, but it continues to have a long way to go. What comes to mind is the saying "home of the brave" , which is not just in the physical sense. As for the descendants of African slaves so many share they are worse off today and it certainly takes BRAVE, honorable individuals to get to the root of the problem. It is very complex problem that to date healing cannot be fully realized due in part to lies and deceit. The human psyche has difficulty experiencing healing when there so much denial and secrecy about all that was done in the past through present to a select group. Starting in the middle or end of a systemic problem by denying or distorting its beginning to all of society is not the solution. So the legacy of the elephant sitting in the living room that very few wish to see or discuss in a constructive, mature, adult manner the atrocities done to the African slaves and their descendants continues. It's hard to repair or get reparations for what has been and continues to be distorted from the beginning to present. African slaves were forced here in chains to give forced labor with no pay for more than a century, unlike other immigrants that have come this country by choice for whatever reason; therefore the experience for them or their descendants is not the same in comparison to other immigrants.

    Humanity is evolving in many ways, but there is still long way to go when it comes to justice and fairness for ALL with truth being its CORE! For those that have tolerance for differences and diversity who believe and strive for justice and fairness for ALL you are the she-roes and heroes of all times! May peace and justice abound abundantly!

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 12/2/13 - by Curt Carter ccarter02@earthlink.net
    Dear MSGT Sherman Junior Hussey, 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
