To James' family - Thanks for raising a son & brother who was committed to serving his country - defending our freedoms and fighting to liberate others. I've enthralled by his life story and military career while building this tribute. I would have been honored to serve next to him. I especially enjoyed hearing what a great runner he was despite his 'dad bod.' It reminds of some of my Marine buds who surprised with their physical prowess despite their outward appearance. Always fun to see the 'mind win over matter' ;) - from Sean on 6/15/19
