Jim was light infantry, but also the Division Historian for the 101st. He was so passionate about history and he knows that if we didn't study history we were bound to repeat it. After 911 Jim secured a piece of the tower and every time a new soldier entered Fort Campbell and they were given a tour of the Pratt Museum, Jim would place that piece of steel in that new soldier's hands and say this is what you're fighting for. He made it personal so that a brand new soldier could feel the passion and feel the dedication that it takes to be successful in our military. He was a wonderful man, the best of the best.
