    1Lt Dugger will always be remembered as a wonderful member and pilot of the 57th Assault Helicopter Pilot. Lt. Dugger gave his life helping others being
    overrun on a firebase asking to be evacuated. Lt. Dugger was returning Camp
    Holloway from another mission when he intercepted a message of distress,
    Lt. Dugger took that assignment and his Helicopter took mortar through the
    cockpit after landing to retrieve individuals from the firebase.

    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.

    I served with Jim in the ETSU ROTC unit from 1965-69. He was our commander and seemed to love the military life. I was always impressed with the pride he demonstrated in wearing the uniform during those difficult times on a college campus. We were resented and scorned by those who hated that war. I lost track of Jim when I went on active duty and didn't discover he had been killed in action until I returned to Johnson City, Tn in 1975. Our country and the Army lost a great American. I often wonder why good men like Jim had to die and some, like me, survived that turbulent time in our country's history.

    I wish I could say that it seems like just yesterday, but it doesn't! My memory is vague so I need to get into my boxes of my own life's history, but I am sure that Jim and I were helicopter flight school buddies. After Flight school graduation, I had heard that Jim and one other of us were the only ones who went to Vietnam. And, through channels I had also heard that we lost them both. This is the first time I have visited this site and now will be very interested in learning what happened to Jim and others I knew. I always said "but for the grace of God there go I!" Jim, you are my hero and I salute you today and everyday! God bless your soul!
