    On June 11, 1965, a USAF C-123B (#56-4379) from the 310th Air Commando Squadron hit a mountain during a bad weather resupply mission during a flight from Tan Son Nhut Air Base in Nha Trang while enroute to Pleiku.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear A1C James Anthony Coy, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, Sir

  • Old Friend remembered

    Posted on 1/15/14 - by Anthony F. Lett (Lt., U.S. Navy)
    Jimmy - We were school mates in elementary and high school and neighbors. I smile when I recall your glee for life and your wonderful old red 3-wheel motorcycle and how you beat the drums in band. I was in the old neighborhood last week and passed your house and saluted you and Cathy.

    Each time that I visit "The Wall" in D.C. I make a point to poke your name on the wall and smile.... then I cry.

    We remember you my friend.
