    Almost every year we gather with other Marines of Charlie 1/1 to honor you and the other Marines who gave their lives that day.
    You are not forgotten

    Dear CPL James B Cannington 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, Sir

    Curt Carter

    Rest In Peace CPL Cannington and thank you for sacrificing your life for me and all Americans. My brother, Lonnie A. Floyd also made the ultimate sacrifice on the same date as you did 1-14-67. He served with C4503 173ABN. Please know that none of you brave soldiers will ever be forgotten.
