From Memphis to DaNang: A Tribute to Major James Edward Morton

This book is a tribute written by a younger brother (known by friends in Memphis as 'Freddie') to his older brother 'Eddie'.

"It is a loving reflection of family and brotherly love, a time, a place and a community. Fred Morton captures a segment of the southern culture within the Silent Generation – spanning the Great Depression and World War II. From there and the Cold War period he offers stories as told by close friends about Eddie and our early scouting and school years. Without explicitly stating it, the author reveals what the Silent Generation exemplified and practiced: duty, honor, country and cheerful service. I recommend this book to those who lived during those times and to those seeking to understand the Silent Generation values. The author and his brother are the quintessence of those values. It does not take a careful reader to discern how service was a major component of their lives; Eddie served in scouting, in the second graduating class of the US Air Force Academy, and in the military community; and Freddie served in scouting, the Methodist ministry and by leaving this written legacy for Eddie’s now adult children."

Remembering An American Hero

Dear Major James Edward Morton Jr, 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
