Jim McDonough spent 27 years in the Army after graduation from West Point in 1969, all of those wearing Infantry brass. He later worked on drug control issues at the White House and in Florida, and subsequently became the Secretary of Corrections for Florida in the wake of a corruption scandal there. With his wife, Pat, he had three sons and they in turn had four children each. Along the way he wrote some books and planted a few trees. He always tried not to forget his roots and all the people who helped him along the way — and to be thankful for the opportunity to attend West Point with a wonderful group of classmates.
