SGT JAMES LARRY WARD

 
James Ward gave his all for his country. He was in my platoon in Vietnam and I remember vividly the circumstances of his death. He was a fine soldier and good friend. He was doing his job when he was killed. He was walking point on a SRP no more t han 150 feet from hill that we were camped on. He and three others walked into an ambush by VC. I can still hear the firefight. What can you say when a good friend walks into that kind of situation? I think of him daily and will always keep his memory alive. After 32 years, I still remember him as if it was yesterday. Rest in peace, honorable warrior.

You will never be forgotten.
I will see to that.



The picture shown above is the last ever taken of James Ward; he is the fourth man from the right, in front of the man with a cigarette in his mouth. James was killed about 3 hours after this photo was taken.

 
A memorial from a Vietnam friend,
