Jimmie Miller was killed in Vietnam during an attempt to take an enemy position. One Marine report for the 27th of October shows events when he was killed. He was recovered on the 30th of October:

Below are the obituaries that were published after his death. They give a complete picture of what took place in James Edward Miller's life before and during Vietnam. They were submitted by his brother Charles, also a Marine.

December 27, 1969 was a heartbreaking day for the Millers. At 3:30 a.m., they received a call from Charlie that he had been badly wounded and had received emergency operations in Japan.

At 1:30 p.m., Jimmie called from Camp Lejeune to say he had received orders to Vietnam. The Marines, said Mrs. Miller, did not notify us that Charlie was wounded, but they notified Jimmie that he was to go to Vietnam as soon as they evacuated Charlie.
