Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC James Walter Edwards, 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

Remembering James Edwards

This photo of Jim was taken in his home on Striegel Court in Normal Illinois in 1961. I was a freshman at Illinois State Unversity and lived in the Edwards home with 7 other girls. We thought of Jim as our 'little brother' and his parents as our substitute family while attending college.

Thank You

Dear James,
My name Maggie Schrenk and I am a senior at Gridley High School doing a class project. I also am from central Illinios. Through a recent conversation with my school librarian, Linda, she told me that you were her boyfriend when you went off to war. She told all about you and how you were the first casualty in McLean Country. You also died trying to save a fellow marine. James, you are a hero. I am too young to know anyone who died in Vietnam but I almost feel as if I know you. I know you are loved and that you are being missed. So thank you James for you ultimate sacrifice.
God Bless
Maggie Schrenk
