Happy 75th Birthday Jimmy!

Alex Mulvenna, our good friend and another special Vietnam hero, left a lovely remembrance for you today. So hard to believe we were just 19 the last time we were all together, enjoying life, back in our old West Side neighborhood. We all miss you very much and think about you very often…. Happy Birthday! Cheers!…. Mike

Old neighborhood friend

You stepped on a mine in Vietnam on August 8th, 1968, and never returned home. I think of you often, most especially in August.
Like me, you were a child of the sixties, a son of a small neighborhood on the westside of NYC.
You were so much alive, so much full of youthful intensity. When you laughed, you laughed hard and long.
Those you knew you and loved you will always remember you, forever young
Today, October 18, 2023, you would have been 75.
Thank you for your service.

Best Friends Forever…..

To all the curious Lucas & Camo families and offspring: I was one of Jimmy’s best friends , roommates, and hitchhiking adventurers since the 2nd grade (Holy Trinity) through our receiving draft notices and enlisting together into U.S. Marine & Army in the summer of 1967. We both got married to our neighborhood sweethearts Angela and Maureen in December, 1967….. I never saw Jimmy after our Christmas weddings. He sadly, was killed 8/8/68 while already serving in Vietnam while I was still finishing U.S Army flight school in Alabama….. He was a great, great friend always! His love for life, generosity, kindness, loyalty and bravery will never be forgotten. Please feel free to reach out to me for more info at [email protected]…..
Respectfully, Mike Dzikowski
