Other Notes:

Eric Brethen: Before coming to us "JC" was the personal pilot for the Commander of the 25th Aviation Battalion but transferred to Centaurs because he wanted to serve in combat. His family and friends have always called him Freddy, his middle name, he hated the name James and in the Army it evolved into J.C.
