  • Final Mission of CW2 Donald M. Cramer

    Posted on 7/15/15 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    At 0210 hours on January 5, 1971, pilot CW2 Donald M. Cramer of a U.S. Army helicopter AH-1G (tail number 68-17083) from HHT, 1st Squadron, 9th Cavalry Regiment, departed the Hue/Phu Bai Airfield on a training flight mission with SP4 Ronnie V. Rogers aboard. No contact was established after takeoff. When the aircraft failed to return within a reasonable time, efforts were made to establish radio contact. After checking all airfields and contact bases in the area, an aerial search was initiated at 1640 hours, and lasted until dark. On January 8th, SP4 Roger's body was found on the beach. The search shifted primarily into the coastline areas until about January 20th, with no sightings of the aircraft or of CW2 Cramer. Because it was determined that Rogers had drowned, it was assumed that the aircraft departed its destination (a fire base), and crashed into the South China Sea. CW2 Cramer was never found. He was listed as Missing in Action. [Taken from pownetwork.org and vhpa.org]

The Wall of Faces

Brought to you by the organization that built The Wall, the Vietnam Veterans Virtual Memorial Wall is dedicated to honoring, remembering and sharing the legacies of all those who died in the Vietnam War. Here you can go beyond the names on The Wall to see the faces, share the stories and read the remembrances posted by friends, neighbors, classmates and family members.

All of these photos will be showcased in The Education Center at The Wall on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the effort to collect these photos and ensure their faces will never be forgotten, visit www.buildthecenter.org.
