James Michael McClurkan [Deceased]

Senior Medical Student, Commissioned with NROTC class of 1965

Retired as Captain USN Medical Corps

Official USN photo shows him wearing RVN Campaign Medal

Editor Note  Captain McClurkan’s obituary referenced his service in

Vietnam as a “medic” prior to his selection to study to be a Navy Doctor.

This would place him in Vietnam sometime around 1961. It would also explain

His wearing the RVN Campaign Medal [service between 1961-1973]

but not the RVN Service Medal [service between 1965-1973]
