On Sept. 14, 1966, to Nov. 24, 1966, raged the largest operation to date in Vietnam. In Operation Attleboro — named after my city in Massachusetts — 155 U.S. soldiers lost their lives. One of the men killed was Spc. 4 James Robert Blevins, of Crown Point.
In my attempt to honor the men who died, I am updating the Vietnam Wall Memorial, Wall of Faces website. Blevins' photo is missing, and any help I can get in locating a photo would be greatly appreciated.
Blevins was born June 4, 1945, began his tour in Vietnam on July 15, 1966, and was killed on Nov. 5, 1966. Please help me ensure he is never forgotten for his sacrifice.
