Freedom is not free. It is paid with every drop of blood, sweat, and tears of our men and women who serve or has served in the armed forces.

Patriots in History

James Edward Kandel

James Edward Kandel

LCPL Kandel faithfully served his country during the Vietnam War.  He was 19 years old when he reported for duty as a Marine.  Within one year he obtained the rank of Lance Corporal/E-3 while serving as a Rifleman (0311).

On July 30th, 1968 in Quang Nam, South Vietnam, LCPL Kandel gave the ultimate sacrifice for his country at the age of 20.  While on patrol, he was killed by a land mine.  His service reflects great credit upon himself, his family, the Marine Corps, and United States of America.

James Edward Kandel was born on May 20th, 1948, and joined the military while in Marysville, Ohio.  James (Jimmy) was a fun person to be around and was a good Marine.  May we remember him always!

Sacrifice for free is not duty but an honor.
