Remembering An American Hero

Dear 1LT James Arthur Burns, 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

A Formidable Competitor!

I remember Jim from The Basic School, when I was dating his classmate, Lt Sam Van Ness, who would ultimately become my husband. Sam passed away in 2000, otherwise he would be writing this post himself. Sam was working hard and striving to be the honor graduate of that class - I can remember this, but Jim was always out there in front of him. I remember Sam talking about Jim with great admiration. Sam felt when Jim Burns, Jim Witt and others from that class were so tragically killed in Vietnam, the world had lost some of it's best and brightest. May Jim and each of these proud Marines be remembered always.
