    Dear PFC James Lucky Jenkins, 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

    JENKINS WAS A YOUNG KID, HARDLY LOOKED 16 YEARS OLD! HE HAD BEEN RIDDEN TO THE POINT OF NOT CARING IF HE LIVED OR DIED.OUR S.SGT. WAS ALWAYS ON HIS CASE CONSTANTLY PUTTING HIM DOWN.OUR CAPTAIN BROKE HIM IN RANK FOR FALLING ASLEEP ON A LP.I SPOKE UP AT HIS HEARING,PLEADING THAT HE NEEDED TO GET OUT OF THE FIELD... BUT NO ONE LISTENED! HE HAD GIVEN UP, HE ALWAYS WANDERED TOO FAR OUT ON THE FLANKS...FEARLESS A GOOD MARINE WHOM SHOULD HAVE BEEN TREATED BETTER.I THINK OF WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN IF YOU HAD BEEN GIVEN SOME HELP.SEMPER FI MARINE,YOU CONTINUE TO TUG AT MY HEART.
