    22nd of December 1961 saw the first recognised death of an American in combat in Vietnam.
    In-Country 5 months James T. Davis was assigned to the 509th Radio research Station at Tan Son Nhut. (Now Saigon, Ho Chi Minh City Airport). The 509th was a CIA cover for the Army Security Agency.
    Whilst on a radio location mission with 9 ARVN soldiers on the morning of the 22nd of December the truck they were driving in hit a landmine in the crowded streets of Saigon. A short gun battle ensued with Davis letting off some four or five rounds before he himself was hit and killed.
    He became the first American killed in the war.
    Davis Station, at Tan Son Nhut (the building is still used) was named after James T. Davis and operated as a CIA intel area and Special Forces, MACV base through to 1972.
