James was a wonderful, patient husband and Daddy to two sweet
daughters. He loved the Army, didn't complain about his circumstances
(horrid heat, exhaustion, sleeping arrangements, etc) and was always
looking for ways to make things better for his men. He led by example
and believed in Duty First, People Always. His little girls and I miss
him terribly and he is a constant presence in my mind, guiding my
decisions with everything he taught me. He was perfect for us.
