Remembering An American Hero
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
You were a good man Brit
We called you Brit. We were 81mm Mortors, 1st Battalion, 1st Marines. You and I shared the same sense of why were there. I have thought of you over the years many times. The memory of your core goodness and your sacrifice help me focus on what was really in our hearts and what we were trying to do there. I'll never let the noise and confusion from well-meaning, but unrealistic people obscure the truth and honor of our intentions in Vietnam. The heroism of your sacrifice is loud and clear. We're still brothers. Thank you Brit. Semper Fi
PLEASE NOTE: If you knew James Britt as a family member or friend, please contact me. I'd like to prepare a more in-depth profile for him and post the info to this site and two other Marine-specific websites. iThank youi
