 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
LTJG James Romanski was serving as a pilot with the Helicopter Attack (Light) Squadron Three Seawolves when he was killed in action in the Mekong Delta region of South Vietnam.  His UH-1B helicopter was hit by .50 caliber enemy fire, causing the transmission to seize at 800 feet.  Also killed in the crash were his copilot, Lt John Leon Abrams, and his crewmen, AMH3 Raymond Douglas Robinson and AMS3 Dennis Michael Wobbe.  His fellow Seawolves remember James's bravery and devotion to duty.   HE IS NOT FORGOTTEN.
