Today we honor James Dewey of Glencoe, Pennsylvania, who fell in 1967. He was 20 years old. He is remembered by his cousin, Darla:

" I was only 2 when Jimmy died in Vietnam. He was born my cousin but lived with our family for several years while in high school. All my life my Mom kept his picture on our wall and the letters he wrote home tied up in a bow in her dresser drawer. Our family honors him, we love him, and we are better people because he was one of us. We know we'll see him again some day. He was a great young man and we're proud to have had him in our family."
