Jim (Doc) Shaw was my replacement as a platoon medic in C Company, 4/21. Since I served with both the 3rd and 4th platoons and since it has been so many years, I can't remember for sure which platoon he was with when he was KIA. I remember clearly the day I received word of his death. I was on standdown with Bravo Company when the word was passed. I knew Jim at Fort Lee Va and then when he was transferred to 4/21. I have tried to contact his family over the years. Jim had a significant impact in my life.

Dear Mickey & Jim,

We thank you, our friends (Ed's for over 50 years), for the gift of a gallant son. There are no words to express the gratitude one feels for those who were willing to risk their lives that others might live in freedom.

Lovingly in Christ,

Ed and Lynda Stankey

My name is Lance Corporal Jonathan Sotelo.
I did not know Jim but seeing this web page reminds me of why I serve this country.
Because I admire the BRAVE soldiers that fought before me.
I am a US Marine and I fought in Operation Iraqi Freedom.
I want to thank his family for having a son who had the guts to fight
and pay the ultimate sacrifice for this great country.
Thank you, Jim, where ever you are.
Semper Fi.

I am Sammy Serrano. I knew Jim very well - I was with him when he died. I remember everything about that day. I was the medic for the 4th Platoon of his company. He was and is my brother - a very nice guy. He is a hero. I am going to remember him forever - I'll see you in glory, brother.
