In honor of his birthday I'll not only share his widow Wende's tweet earlier today, from just after midnight ...
... but also these items she shared with us during our recent shoot for THE CON OF WRATH, since Wende was very much there for that infamous Houston weekend, along with their two boys Eric and Thomas.
These are Jimmy's framed World War II medals, beginning with the D-Day landings among the Canadians who took Juno Beach, one of five from "the world's longest day"—and where Jimmy famously lost his right middle finger. And in this setting, they surround a photo of the handsome buck in uniform! Thanks again Wende, and thanks for sharing; I thought it would make a nice remembrance today.
We'll have a Trekland "Switching to Visual" chat with Wende up soon.
