Like all of us on this Base, I was deeply saddened to hear about James Passing. Many appropriate descriptions have been made about our special brother. For me what impressed me was James courage under fire. He new what the odds were and fought the fight to the end. A real hero. Rest in peace James. You are our advanced scout to fiddlers green. Toujour Pret!
