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

Sir, it was an honor and privilege to have served as a member of your crew.
With you at the stick and in command, my fate was in the hands of the best soldier, pilot, and commander in Viet Nam.
Major Newman, Sir, you were the bravest man I have ever known. I will miss you.

I never knew Jimmy although he was a cousin. He was 30, and most likely long gone from home, when I was born to Judy Newman's sister, Isabel. Jimmy sounds like a man I would like to have known. My condolences to his family.

I did not know you, but you are my leader.
I will follow, and I will listen.
I will be sure to pay attention
To the words written about you
And to the words written
For you.
It's because of people like you,
That I do what I do.
I can only pray to be
Half the leader
You were to so many.

In an era where a person that can catch, throw or bounce a ball and be called a hero, I'm honored to have served with Major Newman, a true hero. I was with him when went in to rescue the medic near Khe Son and also when he rescued two gunpilots in the A Shau valley. I would have followed him to the gates of Hell.My prayers for his family
