  • Final Mission of SP5 Marshall J. Angell

    Posted on 8/4/15 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    On December 12, 1963, a U.S. Army heavy-lift helicopter CH-37B Mojave (tail number 55-00627) from the 611st Transportation Company was attempting to recover a downed U.S. helicopter when it was hit by enemy ground fire causing the aircraft to crash and burn. The ground fire hit the cockpit area as the crew was attempting to sling load the downed helicopter in the Mekong River delta in Tuong Dinh Province, South Vietnam. Four crewmen were killed in the attack. They included aircraft commander CW2 William E. Flowers, pilot 1LT Ronny L. Woodmansee, flight engineer SP5 Marshall J. Angell, and gunner PFC Newman R. Nesmith. The crew chief, E4 CS Albro, survived with injuries. The other crewmen’s remains were recovered except for Angell. A thorough search of the aircraft and surrounding area was conducted. It was ultimately surmised by those conducting the search that Angell was either consumed by the fire on board the aircraft or that he sank into the marshy ground surrounding the crash site. This was the only operational loss of a CH-37 during the Vietnam War. [Taken from vhpa.org and other web sources]

    Dear SP5 Marshall Joseph Angell, 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
