James,

I know we haven't really had a chance to talk since we graduated the course but you will never be forgotten. The many nights shooting pool and late nights going to McDonalds. I only just now heard what happend. May you rest in peace.

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

God Bless you Sgt. 1st Class James F. Grissom...you will not be forgotten.

To the family. From my family. May God give you strength during these times of sadness. You offered to our country your son. A gift unmatched. Sgt. Grissom stand at ease sir. You signed the ultimate check for us. God bless you.
