Fair well my friend. I was right behind you
To Jimmy and friends. We never got to say good by and drink that ice tea. Jimmy and I lives passed shortly for I only knew him about 3 month and he was off to stand the watch. We all suffered a great loss by Jimmy loss, and the many more from those days. Orval and I went in the Navy for four. Mark and AT were purplehearts and recovered. Looking forward to the times when we will meet again. James Howard

Not good-bye
I cannot say good-bye to you, for we will, see each other soon. While you wait, standing tall by the gates, along side the others, who stands and waits. Your fellow, brothers and strangers, you await to meet and long ago friends, family, that you wish to greet. Stand tall my soldier friend, I know you'll greet me, at my end! Always remembered, never forgotten.

The young dead soldiers do not speak.
Nevertheless, they are heard in the still houses:
who has not heard them?
They have a silence that speaks for them at night
and when the clock counts.
They say: We were young. We have died.
Remember us.
They say: We have done what we could
but until it is finished it is not done.
They say: We have given our lives but until it is finished
no one can know what our lives gave.
They say: Our deaths are not ours: they are yours,
they will mean what you make them.
They say: Whether our lives and our deaths were for
peace and a new hope or for nothing we cannot say,
it is you who must say this.
We leave you our deaths. Give them their meaning.
We were young, they say. We have died; remember us.
by Archibald MacLeish,
1892-1982, American Poet

Peace and condolence, to the family and friends. “He which hath no stomach, to this fight, let him depart. But we in it, shall be remembered. We few, we happy few, we band of brothers!! For he today, that sheds his blood with me, shall always be my brother.” Rest in peace brave soldier, you have not been forgotten. (W.Shakespeare) May God Bless you, for your Sacrifice!!!

Cousin, by marriage

Sky Soldier-173rd, Airborne Bde., Republic, of South Vietnam. (Texas)
Jimmy Lee Culwell, was my cousin. My Dad was, James Darrell Holland and my Step Mom, was Ruby Irene Culwell-Holland. Jimmy was, Ruby Holland's nephew. Jimmy was the son, of AP Culwell Jr.-"Uncle Junior." It does not seem, that long ago in 1965, when we were in Akins, Oklahoma, riding horses and riding around, in Sallisaw, Oklahoma, in his car laughing and having fun, with the girls. Jimmy was one, of the best guys, I have ever known, in this lifetime and even though, we were cousins by marriage, he treated me the same, as any of his blood cousins, in our family. I miss my cousin, Jimmy and I think, of him everyday, when I pull my boots on, to get up, for the day. He left, an impact on me, that has stayed with me, all my life. I will never forget him, his love, of life and for people.
God Bless You, Cousin, I will meet you, on the other side.
