You are not forgotten

Jim...not a day goes by that I don't think about you. Mom and I keep flowers on your grave. Sometimes I cry wondering about things you would have done or if you would had a family with kids, so many things I wonder about. Dad is gone and it is my prayer that you two have found each other in heaven and are waiting for the day when we will all be together again. Sometimes I close my eyes and I see you so plain standing there . It's almost like you never left us and you will never leave our hearts. Miss you so very much. Love , Connie

You will never be forgotten

I was young when you left for for war but I will always remember the love you gave me. From the pony rides on ole Dolly to sitting on the bank waiting on you to get home knowing you was bringing me a candy bar. I'll never forget the time we was warming the baby pigs up and ended up with baked pigs! I love looking at the pictures of you and me together. I also go through your clothes and have tried them on many times. I'll never forget that knock on the door in the middle of the night telling Mommy and Daddy you wouldn't be coming home and the days and years after. I don't know why God took you from us so soon but I know he had better plans for you and I lone for the day I see you again. Thank You for giving your life to protect us and I will always love you! Wish you was here to meet my family but I know you are watching us from above.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SGT James Franklin Austin, 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
