I had the pleasure of interning with FDLE in 1988. Since I don’t generally get air sick, they assigned me to learn from JB. It was the best part of my college years. Not only was it exciting, but we developed a really great friendship...from letting me fly in a Blackhawk, to having me over for dinner with his family. JB will be missed. Rest easy my friend!
