Jesse James, no relation to the historical figure that I know of, was one of the most normal Cowboys we ever had. I have no idea how he got roped in with the rest of us crazies. He was an honest-to-God dirt-grubbing farmer from Kansas when Yosemite fell. Grew up not far from Old Fort Hays. That would be the city not the orbital defense platform. The prairie fires burned his farm to the dirt and he needed money to rebuild. That was his reason for volunteering to serve. I kid you not. He had no grand mission to kill every Shang he could. No tragic story of lost loved ones and swearing missions of revenge against those who wronged him. He just needed money to rebuild the farm. And somehow he got roped in with all the juvenile delinquents and rich Family kids that got routed to the Cowboys. God works in mysterious ways.
