Mr. James Bynum
James Bynum was born in Lexington County, South Carolina but
grew up in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It was there that he joined
the Army in 1941 until his initial discharge in 1945. In less than six
months, Mr. Bynum was back in his same uniform at Fort Meade,
Maryland and then with the 332nd at Lockbourne, Ohio. Various
assignments in Washington, Japan, Vermont, ROTC duties at
Tennessee State University, Texas, and then the Supreme
Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE) in Paris, France
before a return to Texas, highlighted his 30-year military career,
culminating in 1971.
Mr. Bynum then dedicated his time and efforts to a career in real
estate before retiring again to enjoy traveling with his wife, Dorothy,
and visiting their two daughters.
