    Dear SP4 William L Dornbergh Jr, 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, Sir

    Curt Carter

  • Crash Information on U.S. Army helicopter UH-1D tail number 65-10089

    As the aircraft started out of the LZ, the pilot was given all clear. The aircraft started up and the skids caught on a cargo net. The aircraft started falling to the right and suddenly fell to the ground on the left side and rolled. A small fire was extinguished. One of the crewmen, SP4 William L. Dornbergh Jr., was killed in the crash. The three other crewmen survived. Tragically, six passengers also lost their lives in the wreck. They were 1LT Edward S. Fisher, PFC Charles D. Allen, PFC Loren C. Surles, SP4 David R. Cushing, SP4 Domenico Cacciola, and SP4 Alan James Ruddell. [Taken from]
