A Stickler for Accuracy
Gentlemen, it's with a heavy heart that I report that long time OSW member voodoo has passed away. voodoo's real name was Jay Pearce. I met him through this forum and was lucky enough to meet him in real life and cultivate a friendship with him. While I work overseas, we would make a point of getting together when I was home to visit, go on to Ft. Bragg and just hang out with other Joe collectors. He loved visiting Bragg and it was always a pleasure to show him the museums, training areas and other places that most civilians didn't get to access. He genuinely appreciated all of the military related things that I took for granted, and seeing them through his eyes gave me a renewed appreciation for everything that goes along with serving this great nation. Jay was a long time member of Flash Force Six, and we had common friends before we ever met. He was a teddy bear of a guy who loved God, his family, the 2nd Amendment, America and her fighting men who keep us all free. I plan to attend his funeral in Wilmington, NC, but tonight I'll be raising a glass in his honor, and I invite you to do the same.
