James J. Walton

West Point, 1989

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Sloan Farrell on May 22, 2009:


On this first Memorial Day since your passing, I will be thinking of you while taking my children to Maryland's Veterans Cemetery to plant flags at the gravesites of brave souls like yourself. I will have the honor of telling them about you, Neu Ulm/Hohenfels and Afghanistan. While they may not get it at first, some day they will know how lucky they are to have men like you.

This Memorial Day and many more will mean much more to myself and my family.

2/4 Infantry WARRIORS Jim
