TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:Armed Services YMCA of the USA
I have known Jim since the late 1990’s, both personally and professionally.
I first became acquainted with Jim when I visited our Armed Services YMCA Branch in Anchorage, Alaska in 1999. Ever since that initial meeting, Jim has been kind enough to have me on his show and give the Armed Services YMCA air time on his KBEAR radio show during each of my visits.
The Armed Services YMCA has invited Jim to serve as our emcee for our annual Angels of the Battlefield event held in Washington, DC. The event honors military medics and corpsmen. It is interesting that several of the airmen attending and who have served at Elmendorf AFB remembered him (and his voice) with great fondness. He takes his role very seriously and his performance each year is flawless.
Jim is equal to any task and I am very confident that whatever he may endeavor to undertake will be handled with the utmost professionalism that I’ve come to expect (and respect) from him. Everyone needs to hear his radio voice at least once.
