MY FATHER.......

Hello to all I am Jennifer Baldridge Hudspeth the only child of Butch Baldridge. It is so wonderful to read great things about my father. As most of you know I was not even born yet when my father was shot down. The only thing I hold on to are the letters he wrote my mother in which he stated that he knew I was a girl and even called me by name. They had already decided on a name. I would love to hear more of the college stories and any others that might give me more insight into my father. I am 39 years old. I have two great children Robert 17 and Hayden 13. I also have 2 wonderful stepchildren, Alexis and Alex . We live in south Louisiana and love it here. Please if any of you have anything to share I would love to hear from you.

The Bet

Butch you owe me $5. The last time I saw Butch was his senior year. It would have also been mine but because of circumstances within my control, I was drafted, went to OCS and in the tradition of an Aggie became an officer of Artillery. The setting was the cookie pusher game of 67. Butch and I bet on being KIA in Nam. I was wounded first but that doesn't count. I miss you Butch and wish we could just forget the $5. Gig'Um My Friend!

Honoring a Fellow Tennessean

While in Washington, DC on Memorial Day weekend 2002, I stopped by a POW/MIA display tent near The Wall. There were 2 bracelets for fellow Tennesseans - I chose the one for Captain John Baldridge and wear it faithfully and proudly each and every day in his memory. I have since had the honor of meeting one of his fellow classmates from Texas A&M, corresponded by e-mail with his daughter, and come to learn a lot about an American hero. I will be back at the Wall in June 2006 and will stop to pause, once again, at your place of honor to recall your sacrifice. Rest in Peace dear friend!
