Thank You

Dear SSgt James Matthews, Thank you for your service as an Armor Reconnaissance Specialist. The 53rd anniversary of the start of your tour is soon. Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart. Independence Day just passed. Time passes quickly. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness, especially now. Rest in peace with the angels.

High School Buds

“Bronco”, glad to see your pictures. We sure had fun in high school chasing the girls.
I didn’t get to Nam until late in the game with Attack Squadron 95 (A-6’s). Wish we could get together for a bruski. I visited your site on the wall in DC several times. You are not forgotten. Tom W.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SSGT James Leonard Matthews, 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
