The Foundation met Mark James through our social media posts. Mr. James is considered a true and faithful friend to the Billy Fiske Foundation and can be found at Billy’s grave most every 17th of August, as well as on other occasions. Mr. James tends to Billy’s grave, keeping it clean as well as adorning the grave with US and UK flags. We caught up with Mark and asked him a few questions.
A wonderful night was had by all this past 17 August, 2022. The 7th Annual Billy Fiske Dinner and Auction was held at Her Majesty’s Defence Attaché Residence in Washington, DC.
I’m just back from London and had several meetings and events there. Friday, I received confirmation from the British Defence Attaché that he has offered his residence in the Kalorama neighborhood of Washington, DC for the 17 August Billy Fiske Dinner.
