He is the head of the family, a retired Army Officer and a Vietnam War Veteran who came up through the ranks. His awards include the Combat Infantryman's Badge, Bronze Star and Purple Heart. Currently he is a “right of descent member” of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company of Massachusetts, est. 1638.

The armiger has long been involved in the research of his family’s history and lineage and is currently a member of the following heritage societies by proven descent from his qualifying ancestors: The Colonial Order of the Crown, The Sovereign Colonial Society Americans of Royal Descent, The Military Order of the Crusades, The Baronial Order of the Magna Charta, The Plantagenet Society, The Winthrop Society, The National Society of Sons and Daughters of the Pilgrims, The Descendants of the Founders of Ancient Windsor, The National Society Sons of the America Revolution, The General Society of the War of 1812, The Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, and the Military Order of the World Wars.

The armiger is the only son of the late Captain James Douglas Laird, 351st Bomber Group, United States Army Air Force, (born Bristow, State of Oklahoma, 1917) and his wife Marcia Eileen daughter of Grant Garfield Strenick and his wife Myrtle Marian Sanders. His father is the second son of James Edgar Laird, pastor of the Church of Christ (born Scotts Hill, State of Tennessee, 1883) and his wife Iva May, daughter of Jacob Snyder Higginbotham by his wife Rose Ella Pruitt. His grandfather is the second son of William Franklin Laird, Farmer (born Graves County, State of Kentucky, 1848) and his wife Josephine Elizabeth daughter of James Russsell and his wife Elizabeth Taylor. His Great Grandfather is the second son of James Laird (born in the State of North Carolina, 1820) and his wife Winny.

These arms are the exclusive property of Major James Douglas Laird, head of his armorial house, formerly of New Castle in the State of Pennsylvania, now residing in Mesa in the State of Arizona. The right to use of the arms is extended to all lawfully begotten male heirs of the said armiger to the exclusion of all others.
