PFC James D. Bowers 9/28/ 1946 - 7/3/1966
It's hard to believe it's been 45 years since we lost my brother in Viet Nam. I was 10 nyears old when you left home to go to Viet Nam. You told me, " As your brother I don't want to go. As an American it's an honor to serve our country. I must do what our Country ask of me." You were the first in our area to loose your life in Viet Nam. Our parents Don and Frances Bowers and many , many friends, established the JAMES D. BOWERS VFW POST 169, in Vanango, PA.
