Captain Leonard Thomas Higdon grave marker

In January 2003, Jim Hersom was granted permission to use Tommy's photograph and the information above on a web site for the 327th Infantry that is being developed by former members of the unit. He shares:

"I served with Captain Higdon in Vietnam. At the time, he was the company commander of Company E, 1st Battalion, 327th Infantry, 101st Airborne Division. I was his company clerk. At the time of his death he was on Fire Support Base Bastogne. I was on Camp Eagle, the division base camp… I have never forgotten him and have had an opportunity to visit the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, D.C. and see his name on the wall."

Please visit the 1st Battalion's home page on their web site.
