    James was my Company Commander in the 806th Engineer Battalion at Ft. Benning, Ga in 1961. I recall he was very slim and loved to run us troops every morning for miles along Victory Drive. He called me into his office one day and handed me orders for promotion to E-5. You will always be remembered.

    Dear Captain James Ernest Casale, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for the ultimate sacrifice that you 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. And please know that men and women like you have stepped forward to defend our country yet again, showing the same love for country and their fellow Americans that you did- you would be proud.

    With respect, and the best salute that a civilian can muster for you.

    Curt Carter (son of Sgt Ardon William Carter, 101st Airborne)
