He knew

My husband tells the story: We were in the same unit. He got up that morning, shook every mans hand in our unit and said goodbye. "Don't do that, you don't know, don't talk like that" we told him. "It's ok", he replied, "I know it's today and I want to say goodbye". Later on that afternoon he was shot by a sniper. One single bullet shot all day and it got him.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear CPL James Maynard Jensen, 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

We will never forget your sacrifice!

Dear James,

As a sophomore at Gridley High School, my history teacher gave us an assignment to write to the people who gave their lives serving this country in the Vietnam War.

Thank you for your courage to give your life serving this country. We will never forget the sacrifice you made by giving your life. Every time someone looks at the Vietnam Wall they will see your name and think of what you did to help this country.

Thank you for serving America!
