After 50 years or so one's mind tends to play games with memory,

but I remember Jimmy James well.  He was fun loving yet possessed

a very intelligent and creative flair for putting on paper keen and poignant


While I cannot recall all the details, I do remember Jim and his wife visiting

us in Indianapolis (around the summer of 1970) after their trip to WV. They were

returning to their home in New Mexico where he would then be deployed as

a U.S.Marine to Viet Nam.  That Christmas our card was answered by a phone

call informing us of his death. Another voice silenced by another ugly war.

I hope we can place a flag beside his name on the profile sheet.

Those of us preparing for our 50th reunion are fortunate. Life is not always fair.

A prayer to all who are currently serving our country and renewed thanks to those

who have already served.
