A Hero always remembered by our family

My dad, Mike Wherley, has commented here as part of 1st Special Forces team. James Layton is a man I never met but will never forget. If any of his family is seeing this, I want you to know that my children know his name. My son recently wrote a speech for the Voice of Democracy and won at a local level. If you are interested in hearing it please feel free to contact me. He talks about both James Layton and John Spires and tracing their names at the Wall in his speech. Even though I never met this hero, his impact is greatly felt by my family.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SGT James Richard Layton, 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
