SA James (Jim) Mayo was my partner in Military Police Investigations (MPI) from 1978 until May 1980, when we both were ordered to school at Fort McClellan, Alabama. Jim went to the CID course and I went to the MPI course. We then got stationed in Germany, I went to Bad Kreuznach, Germany, with Detachment D, 42nd MP Group (Customs), and Jim went to CID Rhineberg Kaserne in northern Germany. Jim, we were a great team, and I will miss you forever, God Bless you my friend, we will meet again!
