FALLS MARINE IS KILLED IN VIETNAM

A 20-year-old Michigan Avenue youth was killed by rifle fire near Quang Tri, Vietnam, Wednesday (Oct 4, 1967), a Marine Corps spokesman said today.
Pfc. James T. Lane, son of Mr. and Mrs. Oren R. Lane, 2478 Michigan Ave., died of gunshot wounds to the body which he received during a scouting operation in the area in northern South Vietnam.
He was born in Lockport and attended Niagara Falls schools. He enlisted in the Marine Corps July 6, 1966, for four years.
Pfc. Lane was sent to Vietnam in December 1968 with "F" Company, Second Battalion, 9th Regiment, Third Marine Division.
He was expected to leave Vietnam sometime next month.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC James Thomas Lane, 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, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter
