Army Sgt. 1st Class Doster was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 16th Infantry Regiment, 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division, Fort Riley, Kansas.
He died of wounds sustained when insurgents attacked his unit using an improvised explosive devise and small-arms fire.
James graduated from White Hall High School in White Hall, Arkansas. While attending Hendrix College in Conway he decided to join the Army during his second year and served mostly as a recruiter.
He received his first exposure to battle when he served in the Gulf War and was in one of the first tanks on the battlefield. In Iraq, he served as a convoy leader and was expected home in November on a short leave.
He was looking forward to being with his wife, Amanda, and two daughters again. James is remembered as a lively, funny and resourceful teenager who loved to ride his three-wheeler at full speed.
He loved the Army and was determined to serve and possibly die with honor. James never regretted getting shipped out, nor would he have regretted how he came home – he died with honor.
