Always remembering you, Jimmy

Jimmy and I grew up together and graduated from Lexington (NC)Senior High School on May 28, 1964. What an ironic thing that we ended up in Vietnam at the same time too--Jimmy in the USMC and I in the Red Cross as a "Donut Dolly". Jimmy and our classmate Bobby Melton inspired me to go to Vietnam right after college to show my support for all of our brave troops, not the war itself, and to be "a touch of home in the combat zone". Jimmy was such a good, kind, helpful person with a perpetual smile who was loved by everyone. I will always honor and remember Jimmy, especially every Christmas Eve--the anniversary of his death. RIP my brother, my friend, and my hometown hero.

Rest in Peace

Rest in peace,my brother-in-arms. You were a good friend and classmate, always cheerful,with a slight smile. You gave all. Thank you for serving. I was in Nam at the same time and read of your passing in the "Stars and Stripes". I remember the day.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear CPL Jimmy Carroll Hester, 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
