September 29, 2011 -- I flew with Jim many times. He was the Condor Commander, while I was the Banshee Commander. We shared many a cup of coffee. He was in one of the most dangerous areas in Vietnam. His air cavalry troop guarded the North Vietnam border from Laos to the South China Sea. My unit was responsible for the A Shau Valley and areas North. Rest well my fellow air cav comrade.

I AM COMMAND SERGEANT MAJOR HANDSEL E. JOHNSON, JR. U.S.ARMY RETIRED. I'D LIKE TO EXPRESS MY DEEPEST SYMPATHY TO THE FAMILY OF MAJOR JAMES T. NEWMAN UPON LEARNING ABOUT HIS PASSING. I MET AND SERVED WITH JAMES FOR TWO YEARS, 1960-62 WHEN WE WERE PLATOON SERGEANTS IN C TROOP, 12TH CALVARY, 3RD ARMORED DIVISION, BUEDINGEN,GERMANY. JAMES WAS OUR SCOUT LEADER WHO KNEW THE GERMAN LANDSCAPE SO WELL THAT HE COULD LEAD US TO OUR BORDER POSITIONS IN WAYS NOT KNOWN BY OUR GERMAN COUNTERPARTS. HE WAS A REMARKABLE LEADER AND EVEN THEN I PREDICTED THAT HE WOULD ATTAIN GENERAL OFFICER RANK AT SOME POINT IN HIS MILITARY CAREER. I AM OFTEN REMINDED OF THE MORNING OF 2 SEPTEMBER 1960 WHEN JAMES CALMLY AND PROFESSIONALLY ASSISTED IN HELPING TO SAVE THE LIVES OF MANY OF OUR MEN WHO WERE BADLY WOUNDED IN A TRAINING ACCIDENT,WHICH ALSO KILLED TWENTY OF OUR MEN. I LEARND A LOT FROM JAMES ABOUT HOW TO BE A SOLDIER AND AM GLAD THAT HE BACAME A PART OF MY LIFE. MAY HE REST IN PEACE. handsel4@aol.com

Major Newman's family: I heard of Major Newmans service just days ago and felt compelled to write. I lost my father several years ago, he proudly served in WWII, proudly helped Veterans through the VFW, and taught me to thank and appreciate all the men and women who serve and what they have done and continue to do for this country. With tears in my eyes I sit hear trying to send you comfort; because of the sacrifices of soldiers like Major Newman and my father, countless people had fathers and brothers and husbands. I was proud of my father as I am sure you are of yours. Thank You Major Newman, I share in his passing and celebrate the unimaginable gains from his life. Robert M Palumbo
