It is with great sadness that we share the news that 101st Airborne Original Jim “Pee Wee” Martin has flown west at the age of 101. Pee Wee was a friend of TAB and we were honored to be at his 100th birthday celebration last year in Xenia, OH where this photo was taken.
When Pee Wee’s wife passed in 2019, he wrote a letter with the instruction to publish it on his Facebook page when he passed. You can read the whole letter here: https://bit.ly/3RUZ3Yb but we wanted to share this excerpt with you:
❝My interactions with those who view this page and with many others who I have met in person over these last years have brightened my later life more than I can tell you.❞
The feeling is mutual, Pee Wee.
