The time was circa 1961.
His name was Jim Poindexter.
He died around age 13 from Leukemia, and in a Naval Hospital in Southern California.
Think about all the things he missed, like Vietnam and the Reagan era.
Think about the Family and Woman whose Family that they might have had, and raised to adulthood.
If you buy the line that we are only forgotten when nobody remembers us anymore, then Jim Poindexter is still remembered in 2015.
