  For My Big Brother
Posted for: JAMES LEROY CRAGAR:
Thank you, Lee, for being a fine brother and brave role model. After training many young men at Fort Riley you felt it was your duty to fight in Vietnam. We miss you. It has been my honor to assist your children, Parrish and Jonnie since your passing.

Parrish, A.J. and Amy are proud of your service. I regret that A.J. and Amy never got to meet you as their 'grandpop' but you are remembered to them as a fine man and great American serving a proud nation. Bless you 'til you meet them in heaven.
