  • Final Mission of LT John L. Abrams

    Posted on 10/14/16 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    On July 13, 1968, a U.S. Navy helicopter UH-1B (tail number 62-12515) from HA(L)-3 (Helicopter Attack [Light] Squadron Three “Seawolves”) was on a mission in the vicinity of Dung Island in the lower Bassac River area when it drew Viet Cong ground fire. The aircraft apparently took a .50 caliber round or rounds in the main engine's transmission. The transmission failed and eliminated the possibility of auto-rotation, causing the aircraft to fall straight to the ground from 800 feet. There were no survivors. When a ground party made it to the crash site, they reported the aircraft was about 18 inches high. The lost crew was composed of pilots LT John L. Abrams and LTJG James H. Romanski, and crewman AMH3 Raymond D. Robinson and AMS3 Dennis M.
    Womble. [Taken from vhpa.org and tf116.org]

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 7/13/13 - by Curt Carter
    Dear LT John Leon Abrams, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter

    If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vgiils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine,...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.
