One day not long ago, as I was sorting through the mail, I noticed a large brown envelope. As I inspected it a little closer, I saw that it was from a family friend back in San Antonio. I opened the envelope and pulled out a spiral-bound notebook. On the front was a clear protective cover. On the page under the cover was a head and shoulder photo of my friend Jim in his Air Force uniform, complete with the now retired Air Force Service Cap. At the top of the page was the title, "Autobiography." Underneath the photo was Jim's full name with "Jim" inserted in parenthesis.
