“I realized then that surviving the peace was up to me.”

We are sad to share the news that Jim Northrup, a talented Ojibwe author, Vietnam veteran and a good friend who was an important part of the LZ Lambeau: Welcoming Home Wisconsin’s Vietnam Veterans project has passed away.

To honor his memory, here is his powerful presentation and recitation from the May 2010 LZ Lambeau event in Green Bay.

Our friends at Indian Country Media have more details of Jim’s life and legacy.

    Jim all the men of India 3/9 will miss you. I first met you in An Hoa when I arrived in country in July 1966. You were salty marine and I just a green boot. You were kind and made me feel at home by the time you rotated back to the states thanks to you I became seasonal marine.

  • R.I.P. my Brother, in the land above the universe, you are now in the green fields of our forefathers. Sitting with our Angels.
    Your home until all brothers have crossed over, you will not be forgotten.
