The photo and following article is taken from The Philadelphia Daily News, special supplement entitled 'SIX HUNDRED AND THIRTY,' October 26, 1987. The special supplement was issued in conjunction with the dedication of the Philadelphia Viet Nam Memorial.
From a native Philadelphian and Marine,
I probably knew Jim better than anyone in the 4/23, since he was one of our squad leaders in AIT at Fort Lewis, and Jim was only with our battalion for a short time. He was a real feisty young sergeant. You just couldn't find a nicer guy. He was killed at Fire Support Base Bragg by an incoming mortar. FSB Bragg was just a short distance to the southeast of The Black Virgin Mountain in Tay Ninh Province.
From a friend,
A Note from The Virtual WallTwo men from Alpha 4/23 were killed in the mortar attack on 30 Dec 1968 - Sergeant Boyle and CPL Walter C. Black of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma.
