  • In Remembrance of a possible family member

    My name is Abbey Borden and students from my school, Madisonville Middle School will be visiting the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on March 28, 2016. My parents will also be attending. We are the Bordens, from Madisonville. My dad's family is from Englewood, so I suspect our families are related. I have requested a memorial rubbing of James A Borden. We are anxious to attend the memorial and pay tribute to James, as well as the many other fallen soldiers. Thank you to all who have served and sacrificed for the freedom we have in this great country!

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SGT James Arthur Borden, 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
