On April 6, 2018 June Johnson sent this account of knowing Jim at Kent State in 1967:

I knew Jim when he went to Kent State University, he wanted to be a veterinarian. 

He had lost his brother-in-law Ken Robinson in the Vietnam war. Ken was a MIA until 1989 when they recovered the remains and his airplane. He was a pilot.  That bothered Jim a lot that he was missing.

He said he had to stay out of college one year to get extra money to pay for his college knowing what would happen with the draft.  He didn't have to go he was the only son but he went anyway.  

He did enjoy the Army way liked the buddies he made in there.

He was on maneuvers at Eglin Air Force Base to be a Ranger when he and another young man were struck by lightning.  The base was/is  noted for lightning strikes.  He was buried in Cresthaven Memorial Cemetery, Bedford, Indiana

I miss him and think of him daily. Someday we will be together again.

He was one of the sweetest most loving person i have ever met.  I worried about him going to Vietnam because he never could hurt anyone or thing.  He was so intelligent, witty and caring but you guys knew all that.

I am sorry I can't add more. Hopefully you can use some of this information 

Thank you
June Johnson
