James Justice

American Soldier James Justice, age 21, of Cherryville, North Carolina, died on August 16, 2012, in Afghanistan. 

James was shot in the head during a combat mission days earlier. He had been transported to a military hospital in Germany, where he succumbed to his injuries. 

James attended Cherryville High School and received a diploma from Gaston College. He joined the Army at the age of 18. 

He left for Afghanistan about a month ago for his first tour of duty there. He had previously been stationed in Italy.

Angels of God, pray for James
Family members stated that James had always wanted to be a soldier. They describe him as a loving young man who was full of life and who loved to laugh. 

James was a man of faith who belonged to the the Kings Mountain's New Beginnings Church of Jesus Christ. 

James is survived by many loving friends and relatives including his father, Randall Justice; and his step-mother, Melissa Justice; his wife Sissy and 3 step-daughters.

Randall Justice, James' father stated - Always be sure to tell your son you love him. Hug him. You never know if you might not see him again.

And God knows that's the truth. 

Pray for the 21 year olds who die in combat. Yesterday, they were just boys. 

Pray for the fathers who have lost their sons in combat. 

Let us pray that James Justice is in heaven. Let us pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
