  • Final Mission of SP5 Herbert N. Adams

    Posted on 6/22/16 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    On May 10, 1966, a U.S. Army de Havilland Canada CV-2B Caribou (#62-4165) from the 134th Aviation Company was tasked with a Special Forces airdrop mission at a remote camp at Cai Cai in Kien Tuong Province, RVN. During a low level extraction, a load of rice hung up in the rear of the cargo compartment resulting in loss of control and caused the aircraft to crash. The pilot and co-pilot, CAPT Gil Roessler and CW2 Joe Hudson, escaped with serious injuries, but the flight engineer, SP5 Herbert N. Adams, and the Special Forces rigger on board, SGT John J. McCloskey, were killed on impact. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org, aviation-safety.net, underwoodconsulting.org, and vpha.org]

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SP5 Herbert Norman Adams, 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

The Wall of Faces

Brought to you by the organization that built The Wall, the Vietnam Veterans Virtual Memorial Wall is dedicated to honoring, remembering and sharing the legacies of all those who died in the Vietnam War. Here you can go beyond the names on The Wall to see the faces, share the stories and read the remembrances posted by friends, neighbors, classmates and family members.

All of these photos will be showcased in The Education Center at The Wall on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the effort to collect these photos and ensure their faces will never be forgotten, visit www.buildthecenter.org.
