Nonprofit chief executive, captain and ship pilot Avis T. Bailey was born on May 19, 1949, in Washington, D.C. to Roosevelt and Dorothy Bailey. He was raised by his mother after his parents separated when he was four years old. The youngest of eight children, Bailey was a precocious child, who learned American history through self-guided tours of Washington, D.C.’s monuments and museums. As a student at Banneker Junior High School in Washington, D.C., Bailey was selected from a citywide pool to participate in the First Scholastic Honors Program. His participation in the program continued until his graduation from Cardozo Senior High School in 1967.⁠
⁠
Bailey was one of seven students selected from 450 applicants to compete for a military academy scholarship. Despite early dreams of becoming an astronaut, Bailey won a scholarship to the United States Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point, New York. The Merchant Marine Academy was Bailey’s first introduction to integrated education. One of only four African Americans in a student body of 1,000, he was often the object of racist jokes and harassment. As a midshipman at the Academy, Bailey visited more than twenty-three countries and ports of call and studied three foreign languages. In 1972, Bailey earned his B.S. degree in nautical science, becoming the twentieth African American to graduate from the Merchant Marine Academy.⁠
⁠
Upon graduation, Sun Oil Company (now SUNOCO) hired Bailey as third mate, making him the company's first African American officer. In 1979, Bailey earned his pilot’s license with the Association of Maryland Pilots and became the first African American in the nation to receive a state-issued pilot’s license. As a ship pilot, Bailey traveled thousands of miles up and down the Chesapeake Bay. He became known by colleagues as “the singing pilot,” who would belt out Johnny Mathis tunes from the helm.⁠
⁠
We honor you, Avis Bailey.⁠

Jumper was 52-years-old, and for 28 of those years he worked as a Greenville County Sheriff’s deputy. On Tuesday, he responded to a call about 3 p.m. on Interstate 85 near White Horse Road to assist other deputies attempting to subdue a man during a traffic stop. He arrived as a scuffle broke out between deputies and the man. Jumper couldn’t disengage from the car as the man drove his car into traffic and Jumper was pinned briefly between the suspect’s car and an oncoming tractor trailer, officials and reports by the State Law Enforcement Division said.⁠
⁠
Badly injured and being loaded into an ambulance, Jumper gave a thumbs up to deputies, said Greenville County Schools Superintendent Burke Royster, who eulogized Jumper. Jumper had worked as an enforcement officer inside schools for many years.⁠
⁠
“That gesture embodies the spirit of Conley Jumper, who to the very end was reassuring others,” Royster said.⁠
⁠
Less than an hour later, Jumper was pronounced dead.⁠
⁠
“Jump,” as nearly all friends and colleagues called him, was a massive man who stood 6-foot-4 but felt larger. He was a gentle giant with a kind heart and a wonderful sense of humor, Lewis and Durham said Friday.⁠
⁠
“Jumper was a man who was large, but small enough to fill the thin blue line,” Durham said. “He was a man who we could all look to, to know that this job meant something. Jumper told me one time, he said, ’I’m doing the most important job in the whole sheriff’s office. And he said, ‘If I didn’t believe that, I’d try to be doing the one that I believed was.’”⁠
⁠
In 2018, Jumper received the Russ Sorrow Award given by Crime Stoppers of Greenville County to one law enforcement officer in Greenville County each year. He’d also received a Letter of Commendation from the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and multiple certifications through the North American Police Work Dog Association.⁠
⁠
He spent more than two decades as a K9 officer with four different dogs.⁠
⁠
We honor you, Conley Jumper.⁠

Donald Michael Mundy passed from this life January 4, 2021, in Glendale, Arizona. Don was a decorated Navy veteran who served in the Vietnam War where he was awarded a Purple Heart Medal, the RVN Gallantry Cross, Navy Unit Commendation and the Vietnam Service Medal with one Bronze Star. He was known for his wonderful sense of humor, the love he had for his family and generosity in spirit and action.⁠
⁠
Don was born in San Mateo, California, to his parents John and Joyce Mundy.  He graduated with the class of 1966 from Buchser High School in Santa Clara, CA, where he excelled in both basketball and tennis.  After graduation, he worked for a short time before joining the Navy on October 26, 1967.  Don served first at Hunter’s Point Naval Shipyard in the Bay Area, then in Da Nang, Vietnam, and lastly at Roosevelt Roads Naval Station in Puerto Rico as a Storekeeper. It was while in Da Nang at the harbor at the Bridge Ramp facility, on February 27, 1969, that Don survived a rocket attack that resulted in 22 fatalities.  No other single enemy action caused a greater number of KIAs for the Navy throughout the entire Vietnam War. Then, not even a month later, both Bridge Ramp and his barracks, would come under fire again. Don still faithfully served until his return to civilian life in 1971. He always shared that he did not experience the disdain some did when they returned from the Vietnam War, but those experiences understandably left an indelible mark on him. ⁠
⁠
Days without the routine of a job [after retirement] allowed Don to re-connect virtually with old schoolmates and fellow veterans.  Most treasured were those that shared his experiences in “Nam.” He spent much time reading, researching, documenting and recalling events related to his time there.  He had reconnected with over 200 fellow veterans who served with him at Bridge Ramp in Da Nang and was active in numerous online forums. ⁠
⁠
We honor you, Donald Mundy.⁠

James Glover Stuart is the recipient of two Purple Hearts which he received during the Korean Conflict. He received the Purple Hearts on September 5, 1951 and November 15, 1951. ⁠
⁠
On September 5, 1951 Stuart was serving in the Kumhwa area of South Korea. Kumhwa was a railroad center located near the 38th Parallel. Orders were given for his company to begin a push north. As the move was being made Stuart stepped on the triggering device of a homemade booby trap which consisted of a grenade. The resulting explosion sent shrapnel into his leg. Stuart was treated and then shipped to Japan to recuperate. After the recuperation he returned to his company and resumed duty.⁠
⁠
After a period of recuperation Stuart returned to C Company of the 27th Infantry. He volunteered to be a member of a patrol that was to probe the enemy lines to see if they could make contact and the nature of the contact.⁠
⁠
Contact was made with the enemy and a firefight began. During the firefight the enemy received reinforcements and their firepower increased dramatically. Because of the fierceness of the enemy, the patrol was ordered to pull back. During the pull back Stuart, along with four others were wounded. Stuart received shrapnel in the abdomen. ⁠
⁠
After the second wound, Stuart was moved to a MASH Unit where he was treated for two weeks. He was then shipped to Japan and then further transferred to USA Hospital at Fort Benning. Because of infection which resulted from the abdominal wound he remained under Army care and supervision for an extended period of time. He was honorably discharged from the Army of February 19, 1953.⁠

Admitted to the U.S. Navy's V-12 officer training program in 1943 as an apprentice seaman Johnny Carson hoped to train as a pilot, but was sent instead to Columbia University for midshipman training. Commissioned as an ensign in 1945, he reported for duty aboard the USS Pennsylvania on Aug. 14, just two days after the battleship had been hit by a kamikaze. As the new ensign on board, Carson was detailed to supervise the recovery of the bodies of sailors killed in the attack. He later served as a communications officer, decoding encrypted messages. He left the service in 1946. He later mused that the high point of his military career was performing a card trick for Secretary of the Navy James Forrestal and actually being able to entertain him!⁠
⁠
Carson was also a fairly reknown amateur boxer during his time on the USS Pennsylvania... he retired his gloves with a 10-0 record. ⁠
⁠
We honor you, Johnny Carson.⁠
