    Dear SGT Jack William Messer, 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

    Jack was a friend to all. He could make everyone laugh. He was nicknamed Rabbit because he could run so unbelievably fast. Jack loved my Mama, Ethel Scruggs. He visited her when he was home on leave and shared emotions and feelings about the Vietnam War. He will NEVER BE FORGOTTEN! Thank you Jack for allowing me to know you and to love you.

  • Jack's baseball career

    Inman's Recreation Director, the venerable Jim Everhart, reported Jack to be a good, very crafty left-handed baseball pitcher. Jack also made sgt. in record time. Jack's dad, "Buck", was a WWII veteran, who enlisted and served, even though he was sighted in only one eye.
