On 6-5-68, "C," Co., 1/4, was dropped on, to hill #672, named, for this mission, as "LZ Loon." Jim and I, were unloading supplies, at the top, the this steep hill, from choppers, periodically dropping off gear, for our LZ.. About 1630, hrs., we began receiving, "incoming," big-stuff, from across the Loation border, some 2, clicks away. We were both, shirtless and quickly ran, to our foxholes and donned, our flak jackets and helmets. For the next hour, we received incoming. Jim,Woody (Corporal's, full name escapes me, now) and myself, all, in the same, small foxhole. Jim and I were hit, the same time, but his wound, was very grave, high, on the L/upper back, area and he was bleeding, profusely. Drenched in blood, he started, to slip into unconsciousness, leaned, on my right shoulder, breathing shallow breaths. I bumped him several times, trying, to keep him conscious, but he passed out, again. He died in my arms, a brave and commendable Marine, never complaining, or whimpering. he just slipped into sleep. I will always, miss Jim and remember him, for his great personality and toughness, in combat.
