This is Jesse Wade Taylor. The man who started our organization. He is a veteran of almost every Airborne unit in the Army. In Vietnam he served with the 101st Airborne (67-68). He is decorated with the Silver Star and two Bronze Stars, both with the Valor device. He also has been decorated with two Army Commendation Medals, both with the "V" device for Valor.

Dominic Mish nominated Jesse Taylor for the St. Maurice Infantryman Medal and presented it to him at the meeting today (July 31,2019). Jesse founded this group and we will always appreciate what he does for us.

This is Jesse visiting the grave site of his good friend Donnie Hawkins who died in 2013.
