The database page for James Lloyd Giegel
I served with James at CAP 2-4-5 before he was transferred to 2-4-1. He was such a quiet guy but one you couldn't help but like. Always smiling; nothing seemed to bother him. James had such a sense of well being about him. It's hard to explain. The worst thing about war is the loss of good men like James.
He was killed in an ambush along with two other Marines on May 26, 1970, while on a re-supply run from CACO 2-4 back to 2-4-1. I think about him a lot.
James a Marine and Patrick a trooper of the 101st Airborne.
