Remembering An American Hero

Dear 1LT James Andersen Smith, 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

Lt. James Smith killed in Vietnam
[Blackfoot News, Blackfoot ID, 17 Sep 1968]
Lt. James A. Smith of Blackfoot was killed in Vietnam Friday, only 12 days after he had arrived there as a member of Headquarters Co., First Infantry. Lieutenant Smith was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Thom B. Smith, 996 S. University, Blackfoot. His father said Tuesday evening no details of the death had been given to him; but that his son died about 5 p.m. Friday somewhere in the Saigon area. The family was informed they would receive more information today, he said. After leaving Blackfoot less than a month ago, Lieutenant Smith had two weeks of survival training in the Panama Canal Zone before being sent to Vietnam. The 22-year-old lieutenant was a 1964 graduate of Blackfoot High School. He attended Boise College and officers' training school. The lieutenant's body had arrived at Oakland CA, Monday. Funeral arrangements are pending.
