Jim O’Ferrell: Ranger, veteran, rockstar

This episode of TNAV features Jim O'Ferrell, leader of the The J.O.B., the Jim O'Ferrell Band.
 
From Richmond, Virginia, 1SG Jim O’Ferrell retired from the US Army in 2008 after returning from his second deployment to the War in Iraq. A career soldier and lifetime singer-songwriter, he co-founded The J.O.B. (The Jim O’Ferrell Band) with lead guitarist Jason Crawford to record the powerful songs he had written while deployed. The group has since evolved into a diverse alternative rock band with 5 albums, 3 national Top 40 charting songs, and scores of live performances from saloons to festivals all over the eastern United States. Rounding out their 4 piece band is Jared Merrill on bass guitar and Eric Bandy on the drums. Along with many songs about life, love, sorrow, and hope, Jim composes soldier-perspective songs in an effort to connect with other vets and to bridge the gap between veterans and those listeners with no connection or understanding of military life.
 
Jim served in many capacities in the US Army and the Army National Guard. Among those assignments, Jim served in the 2nd Ranger Battalion and was a RI at Camp Darby in US Army Ranger School. His awards and decorations include the Combat Infantryman Badge, Combat Action Badge, Bronze Star Medal (x2), and the Legion of Merit.
 
When not on tour or in the recording studio, Jim works as a volunteer with the USO at Richmond International Airport. He has three sons (one college student, one chef, one 82nd Airborne paratrooper) and two grandchildren.

Wills for Veterans

Wills for Veterans is a new initiative of the Federal Bar Association that began at the national level in February 2017. This is a pro bono project where participating FBA chapters are providing will drafting and signing services to any veterans in the local area. The FBA had encouraged all chapters to take part in this program on Thursday, November 9 to coincide with Veterans Day (November 11). All chapters will be free to execute the program as they see fit. So far, 20 chapters have already signed up. Volunteer attorneys, paralegals, and notaries will perform the services, and volunteer witnesses will also donate their time.

To avoid any type of malpractice liability, the chapters will ensure that all attorneys have an active malpractice policy and that the wills are limited to basic estate planning (no trusts, etc.) If a client needs more specialized services, the chapters will provide a list of local practicing estate attorneys who are available at a reduced rate.
Participating FBA chapters include: Baton Rouge Chapter, Broward County Chapter, Capitol Hill Chapter, Dayton Chapter, District of Columbia Chapter, Eastern District of Michigan Chapter, Idaho Chapter, Inland Empire Chapter, John W. Peck Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Chapter, Massachusetts Chapter, Memphis/Mid-South Chapter, Minnesota Chapter, New Orleans Chapter, Northern District of Ohio Chapter, Northern District of West Virginia Chapter, Pentagon Chapter, Sacramento Chapter, San Antonio Chapter, Tampa Bay Chapter, and William D. Browning Chapter.

Contact person for this project: Todd Hedgepeth, james.hedgepeth@us.af.mil or (210) 652-8579 (DSN 478).
