  • Final Mission of WO1 Roy G. Azbill

    Posted on 11/30/15 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    On December 30, 1964, a U.S. Army helicopter UH-1B (tail number 63-08654) from the 68th Aviation Company (Armed Helicopter) was shot down at Binh Gia with the loss of all crew members aboard. After being hit by ground fire, witnesses watched as they began to trail smoke, then flames from a fuel cell fire. Then, as the tail boom drooped and separated from the aircraft, the nose dropped and the rotor disc then tilted back, an apparent attempt by the pilot to keep the nose from dropping. The pilot was unable to overcome the nose tucking condition caused by the tail boom loss, and they crashed, not quite fully inverted, into the rubber trees, just off the S.E. corner of the village (of Binh Gia. The lost crew members included aircraft commander WO1 Roy G. Azbill, pilot WO1 Stephen E. Morgan, crew chief SGT Franklin D. Morgan, and gunner PFC Theodore A. Winowitch. An unnamed passenger also perished in the crash. Note: John W. Vandeven Jr. was the regular crew chief on this aircraft but did not fly that day.

    Dear WO Roy Gordon Azbill, 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
