    Felton was always by your side in training and combat. Quiet, funny and ferocious when appropriate. Always had your back and always ready for anything.

    Felton was always gung ho and ready for anything. He was fun to be around and he was a dedicated warrior. I always knew I was safe when Felton had my back. I have many memories of our times together. He never quit. God rest his soul.

    Dear RD3 Felton Lee Mims, 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

  • I Think Of You Often

    I was your ride to Kadena the morning you left for Nam. We stopped at the BOQ to pick up an officer who was traveling with you that morning. He offered us a drink while he finished packing. I was on duty and could not...but you took him up on his offer...availed yourself of a nice cold beer. And then we were off to Kadena.

    I worked in communications and went to pick up messages a few days later. That's when we learned you were lost. I think you had been gone 3 days.

    I always thought you were a good man and a good sailor. RIP, "Festus"..
