My name is Richard Bonham. I am researching Staff Sergeant James Edward Hughes, he was assigned in 1965 to Detachment A-502 whose mission was the security of the 5th Special Forces Group Headquarters and the Nha Trang air base. When he was killed in action on 13th March 1966, he was part of Detachment A-302 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne), III Corps, Mike Force, while engaging the enemy during Operation Silver City, five miles north of Camp A-312, Xom Cat, Long Khanh Province, South Vietnam.
Do anyone have any additional information on SSgt Hughes? I am doing research for a book and would appreciate any help you can give me. Thank you, Dick Bonham, email@example.com
