    So sorry to hear of this loss. I served with him at Fort Knox for a few years. We were roommates and in the same platoon for awhile. I have great memories of him when we were young and will never forget him. My condolences and prayers to the family.

    So very sorry for your loss. I only met James recently, as a customer at the gunsmith shop where I work, but quickly found him a very decent human being. Prayers for his family and friends.
