Hey Jimmie-
Remember when we were on Army recruiting duty in Chicago and we had the hardest time filling in the box? We were scrambling! Well all these years later I am an old retired Master Sergeant and today I was thinking about you. I know that you are in Heaven being the nice person that you always were, but I miss when we were the 'newbies' and had to scramble! You rest easy, my Friend, I think about you every now and then and end up on this page. I hope that your family is holding up well in your absence. You were a good friend.
