news. Submitted by Norm Whitbeck. Copied from

There was a full-page story on Jimmy in this issue
written by Sonny Vergara.
I was a MARCAD (Marine Aviation Cadet) with Jimmy. Jimmy flew UH-34s in Vietnam on the first tour and became a fighter pilot after that tour. He returned to Vietnam flying A-4 Skyhawk. After he left the USMC, he spent 20 years delivering mail for the U.S. Postal Service in St. Petersburg. From: Sonny Vergara
