SSgt. James I. Spurrier, Jr.SSgt. James I. Spurrier, Jr. (Left)
61 years old from Tennessee
134th Infantry Regiment, 35th Infantry Division
December 14, 1922 – February 25, 1984

SSgt. James I. Spurrier, Jr., aka Junior J. Spurrier, distinguished himself multiple times during WWII. One of which, almost single handedly capturing the village of Achain, France, won him the Medal Of Honor. But after the war, SSg. Spurrier had a tough time. Trouble with alcohol and run ins with the law. All due to PTSD.

You can read more about SSg. Spurrier here and here. And if you, or someone you know, is suffering with PTSD there is help.

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.
We Should Not Only Mourn These Men And Women Who Died, We Should Also Thank God That Such People Lived

    Hello,
    My name is Krista Graham, I tutor middle and high school students and have recently been helping a student with a drinking and driving

    awareness project.
    I was looking for some information, and noticed that you list the Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility (responsibility.org) along with

    a few others on your site.
    Honestly, thank you for mentioning them. I, along with many friends have been on their site, and love it.
    My student, Emma, also found this page http://www.quitalcohol.com/dangers-of-drinking-and-driving.html, and thought it would be a nice

    addition to your resources.

    Please let me know if you decide to add the page to yours! I would be excited to show Emma that we were able to give something back!

    Best Wishes,

    Krista Graham
