Wayne Carter: Purple Heart Winner, WWII

Wayne Carter is not from Texas, but to use the old adage, he got here as soon as he could! He is a World War II veteran, and he was most gracious to allow us to interview him.

We thank Mr. Carter for his service and we thank Missy Jones for being willing to take the time to conduct the interview. If we all work together, we can save the stories of the heroic men and women who work to make this country what it is today.

Mr. Carter makes no pretense about being politically correct, or PC as we like to say. He remembers that he was fighting those who were the enemies of this country, and he sugar coats nothing. He fought the country’s battles at a time when it was understood just what war entails. He makes no apology for that, and here at TU we salute him for his service.

About Fredda Jones

Fredda Davis Jones was raised “in the country” in Comanche County and learned very early that creativity and innovation are traits that can flourish even in small-town Texas and that with enough effort, indeed nothing is impossible, including being married to the same man for over 40 years! Rickey and Fredda have 2 children, 5 grandchildren, and a crazy life that includes sitting in the bleachers several times a week. The rest of her time is spent creating great content for texansunited.com and marketing small-town Texas.
