his military career many places along the way became his home.
At a very young age James enlisted in the Army and served in Korea, but he found his true calling in the Coast Guard with
most of his career devoted to search and rescue which included rescues in the Bering Sea of Alaska to both Hurricane's Rita
and Katrina. He pursued many endeavors throughout the way including becoming a pilot.
