    Captain Andrews was flying F-100D tail number 56-3069 from Phang Rang Air Base on a close air support mission near Thuy Dong, about 30 miles west of Saigon. His aircraft was hit by ground fire as he was making a weapons run against an enemy sampan. Captain Andrews did not eject before the aircraft impacted in an un-survivable crash.

  • To Capt Andrew's Daughter

    Posted on 1/2/15 - by Vic Craft
    I remember going to work the morning after we lost Captain Andrews. It was a night mission as I recall and I remember seeing the Crew Chief for his aircraft saying to me the last words Captain Andrews said as he got into the cockpit of the aircraft were "Not again". We thought it was cruel that on his second tour he would be killed after making it back from his first time in the Nam. His Crew Chief was in shock for a couple of days after.

    Life is dealing with loss. We have all had our share and wish things could have been different. I know of the hole you have in your heart. Those of us who have survived carry a burden thinking of the lives that could have been experienced had they not been take away from us. But we go on as the world continues to turn not knowing or caring for our loss. It's a shame we can't acquire a similar separation from our emotions. Unfortunately we are human and must bear these things. I can only offer you my condolences after all these years. I hope you can put some of your hurt away. Your dad was a good guy. He is missed by all who knew him. I still drink a toast to all of my comrades from those days at this time of year. Hang in there, it does get better.

    Vic Craft, Crew Chief F-100D 56-3181, 615 TFS, Phan Rang AB '69/'70

  • To Dad

    Posted on 11/11/13
    I still think of you so often. I was four years old when you were killed on your second tour of duty in Vietnam . I am now 49, and still a part of me is that little girl wandering why you left us. What is there in a hero, that allows a man to walk away from a wife and two children, after he has already served his country honorably . I know I may never fully understand your reasons, or your sense of honor . You were only 25 when you were killed. I now have two daughters older than you lived to be. Throughout my life ,especially the big moments like getting married, or the birth of my two daughters, I have wished over and over that you could have been there. I can only say that you have left a hole in my heart that can never be filled. And no matter how old I get to be, there will always be a part of me that is that little girl waiting for her daddy to come home. You have my utmost respect and pride that only a child of a hero can have. I love you always, and know in my heart that one day it will be you who will be there waiting for me to come home. Until we meet again
