The database page for James Walter Edwards
My name is Brian Gleason and I am 14 years old. James Walter Edwards was a great friend of my dad's and I feel deep sorrow having known he was been killed in combat. My brother is fighting in Iraq right now and I still don't think anyone could ever comprehend the hell that was Vietnam. James W. Edwards was killed in Quang Tri, Vietnam. I simply hope to God that is not where he was buried.
May you rest in God's hands, James.
A Note from The Virtual WallJames W. Edwards' body was recovered and returned home for burial. Regretably, The Virtual Wall was not able to identify his place of burial.
