Jim Brandon was a class act. He was in a league by himself. In all the years we worked together I never once saw him treat anyone else with anything but dignity and respect. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him. Our prayers are for you and your family, Pam. God bless.

Pam, Pat and I are so saddened to hear about Jim and the profound sadness and loss you and your family must feel. I have so many great memories of Jim; during the four years he was my Division Chief I never saw him get angry or lose his cool and he almost always had a smile and the best trimmed mustache in the ARNG. Pat and I also remember when we visited you and Jim in South Carolina and Jim backed into my car by accident and you said it was the 2d time he did that. I learned a lot from Jim and it helped me to be a better officer, and a better person. Thank you for sharing him with us. With Deepest Sympathy and Fond Memories, Ed Daily

We will always remember fondly our visits with him at the Carolina tailgates and the annual St. Patrick's Day parties. He was always so welcoming and fun to be around. We know that you have lost a great and beloved man, and our country has lost a dedicated patriot. May he rest in peace.
