    Jack I am glad you have finally gotten your dues it has been a long time coming so long ago but yet so close It still makes me sad to just look at your picture and remember the fun times

    I think of you often Jack, especially the great times we went Grinny hunting in the fresh cut hay fields at the Nason farm. You were always eager to do most anything, including being a hero to our great nation. I got your picture from my cousin that you were dating at the time. We will remember you forever.

    Dear SP4 Jack Larell Collins, 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

    With rumors of war in the air and the possibility of many young Americans going
    to war I hope that we will be as brave as you were during times like these. You gave your
    life for our country at a young age but it was not in vain. I pray that every current soldier
    will be as brave and have as much courage as you.

    Thanks again
