I Remember

I did not know James but in Baltimore I use to hang out with his brother Gordon,i knew a few members of James's family.I was in Vietnam with the 101st Airborne Division from 67-68,D Co,1/506th.Sad to say but his brother Gordon passed away about 15 years ago,Gordon would never talk about his brother James.I left Ft.Campbell in Dec.67 for the big lift to Vietnam,was wounded April 68,returned to Vietnam in June 68 from Japan.......when it was time for me to return to the states in Dec.68.....I looked around at all the guys that were leaving from other units and did not see anyone I knew from the 101st that arrived there in Dec.67.Than it hit me that most of the men that I arrived with were gone,wia,kia of just plain gone,i started to cry because I knew I would never see them again.May all the young men who died in Vietnam rest in peace,i still remember lot of the guys like it was yesterday,G.Hadley,R.Mora,Clif Simms,J.Silfee.............so James you and the other hero's will be forever young.................a salute to you and to all my brothers.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear CPL James Dominio Youngham, 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
