    On behalf of the citizens of a grateful county, we honor Mr. McCormick’s military service. We owe him, and those like him, a tremendous debt of gratitude. Our nation is surely a better and safer on because of his selflessness. I beg you to contact me if I may be of any service to your family. With deepest respect and sympathy.

    I knew Jim for several years and he was one great guy! I met him when I worked at Southern Indiana Wood Preserving near Winslow, Indiana and he hauled railroad ties for our company for many, many years. Our friendship continued for several years and my husband and I sold him a Jeep that John had built from the ground up. He was a wonderful man and he was so proud to have served his country. Rest In Peace Jim, we will truly miss you!
