Dearest Friend Gator Jumper and Officer

Jamie and I studied together and enjoyed many days at the University of Florida activities, studying and parachuting.
We also shared a deep love, caring for others, sports jumping and Military service our set path shared seemed so bright. On graduating he gifted me his snoopy hand colored chute and it enjoyed many jumps going on to another young nurse jumper years later.
Our roads parted we hoped for a short time as he prepared to be a LT flying his beloved helicopters while I completed my basic and started my army nurse LT service. Together we graduated and moved forward to serve never guessing one of us would die so suddenly so young. I will never forget that phone call or returned letter marked unable to deliver addressee deceased. I continued in the army and always felt I served for Jamie and myself. Jamie' kindness, strength, smile and quiet courage never fade in my mind but remain crystal clear! At each of five promotions I silently celebrated sending a pray that this was mine and his. Again at my retirement I felt our shared tour was over.

We lost you too young Jamie but live on in each of our minds and hearts! Thank you for enriching my life and the lessons your loss taught me and I was able to employ helping other soldiers and families including our own POW returnees at Valley Forge.

Remembering a Buddy

In 1965 Jamie & I were freshmen at the University of Florida, and both members of the Army ROTC Precision Drill Team, the Gator Guard. Spending the extra hours necessary to be a part of that special unit together, quickly turned us into ”Good Buddies”. I have so many memories of him, but honestly, most of those memories are just mine, somewhat un-extraordinary, and maybe not worth the space in cyberspace to share. What I will share is Jamie's “love of country” and commitment to serve. That wasn't especially easy back then, but there was no doubt in Jamie's resolve.

Still miss ya Buddy – GoGator

Remembering An American Hero

Dear 1LT Robert Jameson Barton, 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
