A great brother....

The photograph of Thomas "JT" Burton was graciously provided by his brother Bobby. JT was well known to be generous, funny and have a quick smile for the girls! He loved all sports and his physique and abilities would have allowed him to become a professional athlete. Near Lai Kag, Vietnam, Burton "braved a hail of hostile rounds and evacuated his companions until he was mortally wounded by fragments from a hand grenade," a citation for the Bronze Star medal reads.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Thomas John Burton, 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
