IN MEMORY OF DORIS "DUSTY" SMITH
"You Can Tell the Morals of a Culture
by the Way they Treat their Dead."
Army soldier Spc. Waide James,
a hero doing the heroic job and just back from Iraq —preparatory for more
combat service— joined the Army in March 2007 and arrived Fort Drum in
July 2007. His awards and decorations include the Army Commendation Medal,
Army Achievement Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Iraq Campaign
Medal, and overseas service ribbon. It is a profound and needless tragedy
that he is no longer with us, a sentiment righteously echoed by all who
knew him. He is survived by loving parents Craig James and Rev.
Kourtnie Dionne Nandlal and grieving wife Crystal. He will be
1988 — 2009
