    Good lessons to be learnt from all the so called "SMART PATRIOTS" in this country. Here was a TRUE REAL LIFE PATRIOT, not these cardboard 7/11 Green Card types that we have.

    One of the best pilots we had. Maintained a low profile despite being the only son of a powerful Executive President.

    An unsung hero. A rare breed in this country. Most people didn't even know that he was JR's son. May he rest in peace.
