  • My Stepfather was so loved....

    I was 11 yrs. old when we lost Jim so I never got to tell him how special he was to me. The impact that he had on my character was huge. He was and is a tremendous example...makes me a sad to know that his work on earth was done so early. He has been truly missed by me and our family!!!

    Dear WO James Joseph Burgoyne, 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
