Thank You

Dear Cpl James Rider, Thank you for your service as a Military Policeman. Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart. The 20th anniversary of 9/11 is soon, and still very sad. Time passes quickly. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness, especially now. Rest in peace with the angels.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear CPL James Austin Rider 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, Sir

Curt Carter

Jim Rider, My friend

I was in Basic Training with Jim and afterwards he volunteered for Military Police.
We all went to Fort Hood, Tx and I saw him off and on. Note, Jim lived in Seattle very close to where my wife and I lived, on Green Lake.
The last time I saw Jim was when he was guarding our home base, LZ
Bayonet. He was guarding our main entry and I saw him and went and spent 1-2 hours visiting.
When I returned home, I call Jim's home phone and talked with Mom and Dad but I did not know that Jim had made the ultimate sacrifice. I always regret not going the short distance to visit with his mom and dad and tell them what a great guy he was AND that io also missed him a lot. One of the great regrets of my life.
If any family member wants to contact me, I think I also have a couple of pictures. I will have to look !
Jack McLaughlin
