Message: It is very sad for me to learn of Jim Waters passing. I knew him from several assignments and we were good friends. I jokingly always called him "Muddy Waters" and we stayed in touch over the years. He gave me one of his Biet Dong Quan - Vietnamese Ranger Badges for my collection and it is a prized keepsake. I will certainly miss him. I share in the grief of his loss, but I know he is up there with the 'Big Ranger in the Sky'. RLTW!

Message:

LTC(Ret) James (Jim) Waters passed away early this morning at his home. I called his home & spoke with his nurse yesterday about 5:00 pm. I gave her a message to give Jim, & while I was still on the phone, she told him that we all loved him and that we were all praying for him. He acknowledged with a nod of his head. She said he understood.

It is my understanding that he will be buried in Arlington when arrangements can be made.

Jim and I have spoken with each other several times a week for the last few years, and shared stories of our military careers. We were the best of friends.

For those who are not familiar with LTC Waters, he entered the military as an enlisted man, rose to the rank of SSG E-6, was wounded in Vietnam, went to OCS, and became an officer, and had a distinguished career as a Ranger officer. He was working in the Pentagon when the plane crashed into the building on 9-11-2001.

Jim was the kind of person that if you asked him to carry your bag for a mile, he would carry it for two.

Thanks to the DC Rangers/Special Forces group for all your help.
