Last Known Activity
Jim was the 1st Platoon clown.  He was always joking and had a very gregarious personality.  When we were ever back at Base Camp, he always pulled pranks and had jokes to tell.  His bunk was next to mine.  At night time he would always announce when he had gas to pass and proceeded to take his lighter and produce three foot streams of fire.  Besides being hillarious, it suppressed the smell as it was quickly burnt off.  Jim died in my arms during a firefight on December 15,, 1966.  I have no real recollection of the actual firefight.  All I remember is Jim trying to breath with a hole through the right side of his chest and then after dying loading him on a Huey medivac helecopter along with others who were only wounded.  I think Jim was the only one who died that day.  This is the main vivid memory I have of that war although there are others.  -  Specialist Richard R. Bradley
