To the James Taylor Family,

As a chaplain candidate at the CBP Training Academy, I have the honor of having USCS Pilot James Darryl Taylor as my Silent Partner. His service and dedication to his country gives me strength and courage each day as I go out to be of service to the CBP Community.

His legacy lives on and he is not forgotten and I thank you for allowing me to get to know him.
