James Miller of Springboro was a sergeant in the U.S. Army. He served, fought and was wounded in Vietnam. In 1967, Jim was shot thru both knees. He would spend eleven days in a coma and have both kneecaps replaced. It was a sacrifice with a true sense of duty.
Lynn Miller says: "He wasn't proud of what he had to do, but, he knew he had to do it and he loved his country. He loved the United States."
Jim came home, helped raise a family that now includes eight grandchildren. Sadly, he passed away last April after a battle with cancer, leaving behind great memories of a man who loved life. Vietnam veteran James Miller, this week's Hometown Hero.
