US Air Force Sgt James Boyd, Vietnam Veteran, Native of Winston-Salem, NC.

US Air Force Sergeant James Boyd was a casualty of the Vietnam War. As a member of the Air Force, SGT Boyd served our country until February 28th, 1968 in Binh Hoa, South Vietnam. He was 22 years old and was married. It was reported that James died from artillery fire. SGT Boyd is on panel 41E, line 059 of the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington D.C. He served our country for 4 years.

He was 1 of 111 USAF Security Forces Personnel who lost their lives in Vietnam.

Jim was my hero: I served with Jim at Montauk Air Force Station in New York before he reenlisted and got sent to Nam. What a pleasant gentle giant of a man. He was always friendly, possessing a huge knowledge of his work with which he readily passed on to his subordinates at the Ground to Air radio site we were assigned. It was a sad day with many tears shed by all at Montauk when we heard of his death. I think of and miss him to this day. Rest in peace Jim. Bob Leahy.

He is the Husband of Mrs Adleany F Boyd, 603 Kinard Drive, Winston Salem, NC 27101; Son of Mrs Lillie M Boyd, 927 East 18th Street, Apt A, Winston Salem, NC 27105.
