John Harrison remembers his Platoon Sergeant James Albert Bunn. My friend, a brave and good man.
Jim, After all these years we would like you to know that you are remembered not only by me and the girls but by all the guys who served with you. We know you went back to try to keep them alive and died trying but they do call you their “mentor”. Isn’t that something? We still love you and will never, ever, allow this country to forget the price you paid. Rachel, Desiree, Cindy & Carol Posted by: Rachel Clinkscale – wife of SFC Bunn 10.5.2002
