  • Great Guy

    Posted on 1/4/19 - by Barbara Wall Galloway
    I dated Jim in college & often wondered about him. I. I finally know. He was such a fun, sincere and honorable guy. I was not surprised that he served his country so valiantly. I will always remember happy times. His love of his old Mercedes and that he introduced me to slow gin.

  • 1st and last real meeting

    Posted on 1/1/19 - by J.G.Miller
    We met on that morning. I had seen the Lt. many times, on the flight line, checking the units that he would fly. Although we hadn't officially met till the morning of the incident, I really didn't know what to make of him. As he approached me, ( I was a crew chief on a slick, at the time) he smiled and we talked. We had talked about becoming more acquainted in the future. He was not the person that I had assumed he would be. I had looked forward to further conversation with him. Unfortunately that time never came. Though we try to forget Vietnam and the things associated with it; that morning has never been forgotten. Rest in peace and may we remember the good, not the bad.

    Lt. Dugger took that assignment and his Helicopter took mortar through the

    Jim was our Brigade Commander while I was a fellow member of the Advanced ROTC program at ETSU. Jim was imposing and every inch the image of a professional soldier. His devotion to service and ultimate sacrifice should be honored and remembered by all who knew him. May he rest in peace.
