Friend

Jim, you were an excellent Friend during our TBS days. I admired your dignity, composure, fitness and intellect. More than that, you had started a family while the rest of us were still figuring out life.
See you in heaven.
semper Fidelis,
Jim

Miss You, Jim...

As good a Friend as I had at TBS. As a "brown bagger" (Married Officer), Jim shared our BOQ room/head to store gear and change uniforms. As if TBS PT wasn't hard enough, on free Saturdays Jim would come in and the two of us would run as hard as we could for an hour, and then run the Obstacle Course time after time until exhausted. Some days we never said a word to each other, just enjoyed the other Marine's company- as Marines do. First, and Best, Black Friend I ever had. Losing Jim defines the word tragedy because he was a Great American.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear 2LT James Calvin Cockerl, 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, Sir

Curt Carter

Great guy, Marine

Always a smile on his face, so willing to help, great sense of humor. I remember him telling me, "E I am probably the only Black Irish Jew you will ever meet.

Just a great human being and Marine

Never above you, never below you, always with you"

Semper Fidelis, Jim
