For some reason I thought I would take a tour of the Vietnam Wall. You gave your life for our country at such a young age. I will always remember you James. Cynthia Taylor. We were high school classmates.

I trained with James at two different locations before we got orders to VN. There were six of us who were to go together, but James got leave to go home. We shipped out around the 20th of May 1966. James came later and went to a different Unit. I never saw him again. We had a short friendship, but I have never forgot him. Clyde Adams, Poplar Neck Rd, Edenton,NC. 27932.
