 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
Jim went into the service at about 17 years of age in 1956.  He was on his 16th day in Vietnam when he was killed.  He started his tour on February 5, 1968 and was killed on February 21, 1968.   His Service Number was RA 25895420.  Jim was married and is buried in the Hardin Memorial Park Cemetery in Elizabeth Town, Hardin County, Kentucky.  I assume he was last stationed at Fort Knox, Kentucky before going to Nam.  His wife was probably living off-post in Elizabeth Town and that's probably why Jim is buried there.
