Jim and I were pilots in the Washington National Guard and flew together on numerous missions during the time he was with us. Last week I was surprised to hear Jim is buried in the Orting cemetery, being a resident of Orting I went up and located his final resting place. The grave stones tell an interesting story that I would like to know more about.
So to Officer A Zambito I say he is not forgotten, I was one of his stick buddies and he will never be forgotten by me.
