Welcome to Jim's Memorabilia ... a website created for my friends and
relatives who have expressed an interest in my career in military service.
I have had so many requests for photographs, that I decided a website
would be the most practical way to convey them. This way I can post
them all, and visitors can download any they would care to. Not all the
photos you see are mine. I have received some from other folks. I can't
remember who sent me which, so I can't give credit where credit is due
on an individual basis. I know I have pictures from such prominent
names as Snyder, Kilduff, Bowman, Fillmore, Kane, Levering, Eaton,
Koper, Carpenter, and others that have slipped my mind. Sorry 'bout
that! (Xin Loi!). I hope you enjoy this brief pictorial journey through my
military career (a sizeable portion of my adult life)..
|God and the Soldier, we adore,
In time of danger, not before.
The danger past and all things righted,
God is forgotten and the Soldier slighted.
--- Rudyard Kipling
NOTE: The audio you are hearing
is an excerpt from journalist/author
Joe Galloway's speech to the
Vietnam Helicopter Pilot's Association.
Great patriot ... great speech!
