James' tour of duty began on May 21, 1968. He served with the 1st Cav and was killed in Binh Long, South Vietnam, with only 22 days to go until he was coming home. There is not a day goes by that I don't think of Lil Jim and wonder what it would be like if he would have lived. Thru the internet I have met many other men who served with Jim and I know that thru them he will never be truly forgotten. Welcome Home!!
