The database page for James Everett Sawyer, Jr
Jim was a friend of mine from Laconia.
We completed jump school together, February 1969.
God only knows what we would have got into if we had known each other longer. Instant brotherhood at Ft Benning, like we had been friends forever. He wasn't Jim to me, I always called him "Tom Sawyer". Cried the day his letter was returned to me in the Nam. First time since I was a kid. Still get weepy thinking about it. God have mercy on us all. Rest in peace, Jim!
From a friend,
Hello Uncle Jimmy,
My father has told me so much about you. I hear you were a ladies' man, had an ear for music, and were a wonderful person. My son Josiah looks like you. You are missed.
Love, your niece Kendra Sawyer
