I would simply like to say I am so sorry for your loss, but because of people like Mr. James we can all enjoy our freedoms. I am a senior at Winfield High School and we were assigned a project today. Each of us was to look up a fallen hero that was related to us in some way. My father's middle name is James so this is how I came upon James Edward Chaffin III. I am so thankful that I can play basketball which I love so much, watch all of my favorite t.v. shows such as "Friends", and to be able to do these things freely I will be forever greatful for. I know words will never be able to take away your pain and loss, but again, I am very sorry for your loss but I am thankful for men and women who fight for our country so we can be free. Y'all will forever be in my thoughts and prayers. Just know that you are never alone in your battle.
If you would like to contact me you can do so by emailing my teacher at jwilson@wilfield.k12.al.us

I know there are no words to say at this time, except how sorry that I am. My thoughts and prayers are with you always. James will never be forgotten.

For you every single soldier
Those who served so honorable
Your life was forever altered
While I'm home safe and free
I stand with grateful admiration
I stand respectful and so proud
I know I'm only a civilian
And I don't even know if it's allowed.

But I salute you; allow me the honor to salute you with permission let me say.Even though I hold no rank know that from my heart, My humble gratitude comes from the deepest part.

I salute you

For those missing in action;for those who didn't make it home. I know you're in God's presence you are not alone. For every neatly folded flag;for every shattered family
I will do the only thing I know to dignify your memory.

I salute you, allow me the honor to salute you with permission let me say even though I hold no rank know that from my heart my humble gratitude comes from the deepest part.

I salute you.

I Salute You.
