    Jay and I were friends while living in Bad Tolz Germany, our families live next to each other for 3 years. He was one year older than me and like a older brother. Our families were very close. I new his brother Mike and the twins Jimmy and Jamie. I left Germany when the 8th grade and Jay was about to go go high school in Munich. I couldn't wait to go to the boarding school with him and stay there during the week and come home on Friday night. memories of biking, skying, camping out during the summer going to the youth center. My dad was in Veit Nan also at the same time and let us know the Sgt Mag just got in to country when Jay was killed and he had to fly him home to himself mom Ernie, to bury
    Like I said our families were very close when we were young
  • From a letter dated 20 November 1965

    My Dad was in SF with Jay's Dad and I found something in a letter my Dad wrote to his wife dated 20 November 1965 about him, transcribed below(he was 19 not 18):

    "I don't know if you remember Sgt.Maj. Lynch or not but he went to Vietnam the same time as I left for out here. He got to Vietnam just in time to see his son Jay get killed. He got to bring his body back for the funeral and then went to Nam again. I have known Jay since he was 5 years old. He was just 18 years old. There sure are a lot of people I know getting killed over there. Sometimes I wish I was there just so I could get my licks in. But if I said anything people would think I was crazy. There are going to be lots of our friends done in before it's over."

    Dear PFC Justin Marshall Lynch, 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
