I googled my name and came across Pfc. James R. Cawthon and would like to send my thoughts and prayers to any of his living family members. I was born March 21, 1949 and went into the US Army in Jan 1968. Iwent to Vietnam in June and served with the 2nd Batt,14th Unit of the 25th Infantry. On Oct. 31, 1968 I was wounded in action and was sent home. I presently live in Sanford, FL. Would you forward this e-mail to any living relatives of the deceased? It sure is a small world; however, what big GOD we serve. Thank You and God Bless You James R.Cawthon
