James was born and raised in upstate New York where he found a passion to serve his country, just as his father did before him. Following his high school graduation, he enlisted in the U.S. Army as a Fire Support Specialist (Forward Observer), serving in both Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. After his second deployment, James transferred over to the U.S. Coast Guard, where he continued his service as a Maritime Enforcement Specialist in the Bahamas, Caribbean seas, Virginia, Louisiana, and finally bringing him to the U.S Coast Guard Small Boat Station in downtown Charleston, South Carolina. It took no time at all for him to fall in love with the area, the culture, and the people.
