No need for any explanatory posting here; as either You knew of Jim Nabors or You did not. What an entertaining history he left to parts of the world.

During some of my various duty stations in the U.S. Army, I can certify that Nabors' role in "Gomer Pyle: USMC" was a resounding hit among many other U.S. military personnel. Moreover, there was a concomitant report afloat that he did both retired and active-duty U.S. Marine personnel so proud that one pastor from Alabama, Nabors' birthplace, had a son serving in the U.S. Navy -- which often went arm-in-arm with Our Marines -- hand-etched 'Semper Fi' into a piece of stone for Jim Nabors.

Irony -- yes irony, again -- shadows me: About a week or so ago, a TV awakened me and the movie playing was about something I can't recall. But what damned-near jumped from the screen was the mug of "Sgt. Carter," properly know as Frank Sutton in the role of co-star.

And even more irony: Mr. Jim Nabor's from-the-diaphragm bassist/baritone-ish voice (quite a surprise to some) fairly thrilled many ears: How do I now this? Because his record sales sold into the 1,000 in parts of the world that did not even have a military!

R.I.P., Mr. Jim Nabors-- and Thank You, and your loved ones who shared You with Us!
