I served with Captain Jim Mann at B-36, 3rd. Mobile Strike Force, 5th. Special Forces in III Corps,Vietnam. I have some fond memories and funny stories about Jim and I was waiting for him to return to our base camp when he was killed making a helicopter re-supply mission to one of our cambodian battalions. I would be happy to share some of those memories with any of his family or friends.
