  • For CWO2 James Stevens DRAVIS, JR, USA...Mineral Point's bravest hero, who gave his all for us!!

    He loved us so.
    Every day, in a hundred ways, he told us so.
    In honesty, in affection, he told us so.
    He loved us so.
    Every day, in a hundred ways, he showed us so.
    With loyalty and bravery, he showed us so.
    He was our defender, and he kept us free!
    He took an oath to guard us, and fought for liberty!
    He loved us so, and we should know.
    For we loved him so.
    Mister Dravis, you were the very essence of DUTY!...HONOR!...and COUNTRY! You had been there and done that in Vietnam! You were one brave man who did brave deeds for our America! You flew and you fought for the right without question or pause! Your name and fame are the BIRTHRIGHT of EVERY American citizen! In your youth and strength...your love and loyalty...you had given all that mortality can give to defend liberty everywhere! Mineral Point is very proud of you, Sir! You sacrificed your life so that freedom and justice may live! You had lived up to the code of conduct and chivalry of those who guard this beloved land!...an ideal SO NOBLE that it arouses in all of us a sense of pride, and yet, of humility! I strongly and honestly believe that Avonmore's own Jill Corey, whom I so greatly and so immensely admire as one of my three top favorite songbirds of all time, the other two being Walton-on-Thames's own Julie Andrews, England's musical queen, and London's own Dusty Springfield, another thrush from England, would be very proud of your service to America, and the sacrifices you made to keep our country and us free! Well done, Sir! Be thou at peace. ARMY STRONG!!

    Dear CWO James Stevens Dravis Jr, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter

    Jim was a good friend, a great pilot and U-21 Standardization pilot. He taught me a lot. It was my privilege to call back to RVN for his wife and find out how he died. He was a great loss.
