All that was left behind...

I believe you'd be proud of all you left behind. God sent an angel to step into your shoes and he is a true blessing to your family. You have 12 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren, so far... We are all proud of you and miss you dearly. Until we meet again.

Final Mission of MAJ James E. Whitt

MAJ James E. Whitt was the pilot and CAPT James T. Jackson the bombardier/navigator on an F-4D attached to the 25th Tactical Fighter Squadron at Ubon Airfield, Thailand. On March 23, 1972, the two were assigned an operational mission that would take them over Savannakhet Province, Laos. Other pilots in the flight observed Whitt's aircraft crash in an inverted position upon egress from the target, about 25 miles southeast of the city of Muong Nong. Both men were briefly classified Missing in Action, during which time Jackson was promoted to the rank of Major. On March 24, however, it was determined that both men had died in the incident, based on the receipt of unspecified evidence of death received by the Department of the Air Force.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear Major James Edward Whitt, 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
