Bringing Jim home

I was the HMM-164 pilot, call sign Press 1-1 who the Commanding Officer, LTCOL Siminich asked to go pick up Jim's remains and the Marines killed on July 3, 1968, in Antenna Valley on a reconnaissance insertion by a team from 1st Force Recon of 10 men. Sad that all 10 recon Marines perished as did the co-pilot 1stLT Daley only in the country for 1 week. I am posting Jim's CH-46 at the site after the shootdown by an RPG in the aft pylon. Jim and I trained together, went to Vietnam in August 1967 together, and were supposed to come home together on September 10, 1968. His daughter Joni was 3 years old and her brother 11 months old at the time, and we will always be lifelong friends...Colonel Richard (Dick) Rosser, USMCR (Ret.)

Remembering

Jim took the flight that I was originally scheduled for that cost him his life. He was my friend and hooch-mate. Every Memorial Day my thoughts turn to him.

Never forgotten

Hi Jim,
Soon will be 51 years since you are gone. I still think about you all the time and want to let you know that my oldest son who is named after you turned 5o this past June. He is a good man and you would be proud of him too. He knows very well to never dishonor his name. I have told him of our adventures and the fun we had.
I have had the privledge to know three great men in my life. You are one of them.
I lost track of your family I am ashamed to say but I know they are great people too.
I miss your friendship.

SEMPER FI,
Eddy Vercelli
