Major James (Jim) Leady serves as Executive Officer in the 690th Quartermaster Detachment (Petroleum Liaison Team), U.S. Army Reserve. He is leaving on April 16th to join his unit who are scheduled to deploy later that month to Kuwait in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. The girls made a sign to thank him for his service and we thought this would be a great tribute to him and his dedication to our country and his family. This picture was taken at the Nike Academy Showcase in Schaumburg, IL. Jim is the father of Kayla Leady (second from the right)who plays on the 02 Echo Blue girls team.
