"I know it's been several years now since Jamie's sacrifice for his country but I'm committed to remembering those who paid the ultimate price for their patriotism---CW5 Jamie Weeks was one of them. I remember him from high school and though we weren't closely acquainted I was (like many) very affected by his passing. I continue to pray that his family and loved ones will continue to treasure his memory. Once again, I salute your sacrifice and consider you a true American patriot!"

"To the Weeks Family,

Keelan and I were talking about veterans the other day and of course, Jamie. Keelan was a little boy when we attended the funeral, but what he does remember is in full detail.

"As many of the others posted here have said, Jamie was a mentor and friend. He was one of the most memorable, funny, and profoundly genuine people I have ever known. As long as I live, I will remember him and will be thankful to have known him. May God keep and richly bless his family!"
Mark Ivey of Newton, AL

"Today is Memorial Day, 2011, and a time to remember those brave men and women who gave their all in the service of our great Nation. I did not know Jamie personally, but I do know his brother Joel, and I do know how deeply he grieved over the loss of his dear brother. That was a difficult time for family members, his many friends and fellow Soldiers because Jamie was so widely respected and admired. I'm grateful for the many brave men and women facing danger and adversity every day to keep this Nation free. God bless those that have passed; God bless those still serving and please God watch over and protect them from harm."
Jess Rawls of Athens, GA

"Jamie and I served together in 1-101st Avn Regt during Desert Shield and Desert Storm. We later attened the US Army Safety Course together in 2001. We always remained good friends. In my 30 years of Army service and my 57 years of life, Jamie is one of, if not the greatest, human being I've ever known. To his family, few will ever know or experience the depth of your loss, but know that Jamie loved you deeply and that he honored you. Like you, his loss hurts me so much. You have my sincerest sympathies, affections, and respect."
CW5 (Retired) Rick Church of Clarksville, TN

"I never want to forget the sacrifices of so many young men and women. I am so proud it makes me cry. I understand in theory only that war is a part of human nature but so is love and caring. I wish I could take the families pain away but I can't. I am committed to loving ALL people, myself and our environment. I am committed to working on my happiness everyday because so many have died for my freedom to live my life. Thank you is not enough but it is all I have.

"To my fellow Night Stalker, neighbor and friend Jamie D.Weeks. I have many fond memories of Jamie and it makes me feel good to read other stories on this site and see how he touched others as well. When I first met him we talked and he asked me my name, I responded," SSG Edwards". He looked at me and said,"no your name boy? I looked and said, "Eddie". "Nice to meet you I'm Jamie". That said everthing in itself right there.

"To the Weeks Family,

Jamie was a big influence on my life, and I still remember him as a mentor to me. We worked together in a small motorcycle shop in Enterprise, Alabama when he was around 20 yrs old, to me he was the coolest guy I had known. I was just 16 at the time He decided to go into the service and didnt see him many more times, but I always thought about him from time to time, when a song that came on he turned me on to, or something funny he said would come back around. He will be missed by many people, he just touched people in a genuine way that lasted and will always last."
Steve Carr of Enterprise, Alabama

"As a forward observer in 3rd Ranger Bn.I was always relieved when Mr. Weeks would show up to fly for us. I knew the mission would get done right. He was one of the most professional men I have known. Not only was he a great pilot, but he was also a teacher. He taught a young Ranger (many young Rnagers)lessons and skills that have saved lives.Jamie you are greatly missed."
Justin Finney of Columbus, Georgia

"I went to Mr. Weeks memorial service at Fort Campbell. I am so sorry for your loss and am grateful for his sacrifice."

I have fond memories of Jamie. We we're high school classmates. I know he will be greatly missed."

"If it wasn't for Jamie, I probably would not be a Night Stalker. Jamie took me under his wing and guided me down a path of success. I was truly saddened when I heard about his death. He was a great warrior and a friend. My prayers go out to the family. NSDQ"

"This is in memory of an outstanding individual whom we had the pleasure of meeting and knowing at SHAPE in Belgium, and of whom we are so proud.

COL and Mrs. James M. Sigler of Houston, Texas

"We are so sorry for your loss. We can truthfully say we know how you feel. We lost our son PFC John E. Brown on 4-14-03 near Baghdad. Just know our sons died everybody's HERO."
Bonnie & Ed Brown of Troy, Ala

"I was Jamie's platoon leader in Korea 4/7 Cav. As a CW2 he was a fine man/soldier/ oficer/pilot. I always felt relieved when I shared an AH-1 with him or if he flew my wing.

Col. Weeks, Jimmie after meeting and instructing at Ft. Rucker with you, I could see why Jamie was the top drawer individual that he was. It's a Weeks family trait.

I haven't physically seen Jamie in years, but I feel/know the world has suffered a great loss. Like everyone who ever had contact with Jamie I feel the loss personaly.

When I get to Heaven It wouldn't surprise me to be met by St. Peter with Jamie saying," Come on Cpt. get checked in and let me show the ropes up here." That's the kind of guy Jamie is."
Mason Hendricks of Indianapolis, IN. USA

"Thank you Jamie Weeks, you will not be forgotten. Your bravery goes beyond words. I want to express my deepest gratitude for your sacrifice.
