My name is Tom Duncan
and I am very proud to say that I am Second cousin to cpl.James
from company D 1/22 who was killed on April 5,1969.To my understanding,he died in a very heroic way,
holding the enemy line while wounded himself,giving time for the other wounded to be evacuated to safety.
I am oh so proud to be able to say that I am related to such an honorable man,even though I was only 3 yrs old
when he was killed and never knew him.
I very sincerely thank
him,and all of our veterans from every war for the service time
Its because of our veterans that I can enjoy the freedom that I have and there is no way I could ever repay that debt!
Also, sir,I respectfully
ask if there is any way you might could help me with contacting
one or more of the other soldiers
that was with cpl.Brock on that fateful day.I would really like to know my cousin better and that is the only way I can
until we all get to heaven.
Once again Thank You to
all of our veterans,and thank you, sir,for any help you could
give me on my quest
to know cpl.James A. Brock 1948-1969.
Yours truly, Tom Duncan
