Remembering Wisconsin’s Fallen: Sgt. James N. Tycz

The WMC honors U.S. Marines Sgt. James N. Tycz, who was killed in action on May 10, 1967 in Quang Tri, South Vietnam. Sgt. Tycz was awarded the Navy Cross for his valor under fire while leading a seven man reconnaissance patrol deep in enemy-controlled territory. He lost his life while trying to throw a grenade back at the enemy after it had landed near his fellow wounded Marines.

In addition to the Navy Cross, Sgt. Tycz was awarded The Purple Heart, National Defense Medal, Vietnam Service Medal and Vietnam Campaign Medal.
