A job well done. God bless you.

To the family of Lt. Vernon Baker .
I cried the day that President
William Jefferson Clinton made the annoucement that there were several
Negro Men that deserved the Medal Of Honor and that only one was still alive. I was proud to be an American that day because a wrong had been righted . I am one that will stand-up for a Veteran. My mom's brother was in Italy during World War 11 also . My dad's family also in the Military. I married a Sailor . I know the hardship that came and still does come into play
to this day while in the Military . I cried that day just as I am crying right now . I am sorry for your loss.
May you find Peace in Christ Our Lord. Amen .

Hero's never die, they continue living through the selfless actions that they performed which keep us alive. His many visitations to Fairchild AFB and as a guest in my home in Spokane, Washington can attest to that. He was a consumate performer! Although the world tried to pull the curtain on Him, He kept on performing. God ordained His show to be a must see. Thanks to you and your family for helping to make a way for us to even get on stage. As a Christian, African American family, we the Jenkins are eternally grateful for your example.

Hero's never die, for there lives are sustained through their past selfless actions which allow us to live. His many visitations to Fairchild AFB and as a guest in my home in Spokane, Washington in 2008, can attest to that. Thank you Mr. Baker for your continued actions on the stage. Even when the world pulled the curtain, you kept on performing. As a Christian, African American Family, we are eternally greatful for your example.

God bless the family and thank you for sharing the memory of your loved one with us. Lt. Baker was a TRUE American Hero; he embodied the attributes of a great man and showed us how to triump over challenges including the lens of racial politics on the founding principles of America. My father joined the Air Force a few years after its desegregation and benefitted from the service and sacrifice of Lt. Baker and others like him. Thank you for sacrifice on our behalf and I only hope America can learn to be worthy of that sacrifice.
