    My name is Nicole Lavalais and my mother just recently informed me that Marine 1Lt Adam Simpson was our relative (cousin). I am a 20-year Air Force veteran and I am both proud and honored to be related to a Marine officer who served and died for our country. May he rest in peace. If anyone was stationed with my cousin or have any further information regarding his service in the Marine Corps, both my family and I would be most appreciative to hear from you.

    I knew the Lt. And a lot of the marines in his platoo.. Simpson's platoon were on patrol when they were ambushed by the VC . I hate to say this but it was bad for them. They radioed for help so my platoon took off immediately on our way there we surprised several VC we took care of them without slowing down, as we came around a slight corner we stepped right into a war. We couldn't get there quick enough. Almost everyone in his platoon was either killed or wounded. The fire fight lasted into the night. The wounded were helicoptered out, the marines that died went the next day..

    Dear 1LT Adam Ernest Simpson Jr, 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
