It has been a pleasure working with James. I enjoyed every phone conversation with him. Especially when he told me he was stationed at Loring AFB. What a small world. He was always so kind. My deepest condolences to Chad Bailey, his coworkers, and all the family. Rest In Peace James.

James was my brother, but not by blood. Our choice to be brothers has been one of my lifes greatest treasures. Thank you James. You helped me be a better leader. You coached me through a divorce (from the middle east). You were my advisor on how to be a better dad. You drove 9 hours to help me bury my father. But most of all, thank you for years of laughter and brotherhood. Until we meet again bud.

I served with James at Barksdale AFB. He was one of the finest people I served with and was a big help getting me ready for a short notice deployment. A true professional he will be greatly missed. I am so sorry he is gone way to soon. Prayers and condolences to the family.
