Foe's Fire Kills
Caldwell Marine

     CALDWELL - Enemy mortar fire Nov. 30 near Quant Tri, South Vietnam, killed Jimmy Lee Ward, 20, of Caldwell, according to the United States Defense Department.
     Marine Pfc. Ward was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Hardy Ward of 2607 Montana Ave., Caldwell.  They were informed of their son's death Sunday by the Marine Corps representative in Boise.
     The Defense Department said Pfc. Ward, who joined the Marine Corps last March, was killed Thursday by "sustained fragment wounds to the body from hostile mortar fire while engaged in action.  The telegram, which arrived Monday, said the battle area was in the vicinity of Quant Tri.
     Pfc. Ward had been serving in Vietnam since early in September.
     He was born May 1, 1947, in Nampa, and had lived all of his life in Canyon County with the exception of his time spent in the service of his country.  He attended school in Caldwell and at Vallivue High School.  He served with the National Guard before joining the Marine Corps.
     Survivors, in addition to his parents, include two sisters, Mrs. Pamela Price of Nampa and Mrs. Sandra Fivecoat of Caldwell;  grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. B.W. Ward and Mr. and Mrs. J.C. Little, all of Nampa, and a great-grandmother, Mrs. Lena Harper of Nampa.
     Local funeral services will be announced by Flahiff Funeral Chapel of Caldwell.
