Angel Day

You may not have thought it at the time, but your service for your country was not and has not been in vain.

It took a long time for the country to appreciate the sacrifice you and the countless others on the wall made, but it has happened.

For me this is evident in the messages that are left here on this site, especially by young people expressing thanks to you all for what you have done. You are and will always be source of good and a hero to those lives you have touched -- young and old alike.

I have been to the Wall and the reverence there is unbelieveable. The Wall is a sacred place to me. You all can be felt there.

So, on this your Angel Day please know that this American is so thankful for you and for your willingness to service your country and for the ulmitate sacrifice you made in the name of freedom. Thank you 1stLT Jerson -- you made a difference.

A Friend

Jim was a great guy. We attended Special Forces Officers Course together during the Summer of 1968 at Fort Bragg. He went to Vietnam right away, I followed a year later. For some reason I never forgot that the first time I heard the Doors' song "Light my Fire" we were diving off post somewhere on a Saturday afternoon. I was in the 8th SFG when I read in the Army Times that he had been killed. He was a great guy, a true warrior and a Southern Gentleman. May he rest in peace.
