  • Final Mission of SGT Kenneth L. Barnett

    Posted on 11/18/15 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    On June 5, 1972, an Air America Curtiss C-46A with 29 passengers (11 U.S. military, 14 SVN military, 1 SVN civilian, and 3 Air America mechanics) plus a crew of three crashed on approach near Pleiku, Vietnam after stops at Saigon and Hue-Phu Bai. The eleven U.S. military personnel confirmed KIA included LTC Ronnie A. Mendoza, LTC Andrew F. Underwood, MAJ Calvin T. Gore, 1LT Charles L. Flott, SFC Andee Chapman Jr., SGT Kenneth L. Barnett, MAJ Nicholas Quinones-Borras, CAPT James F. Hollis, CAPT Walter S. Mullen, SSGT Thomas M. Lejeune, and SGT Michael L. Hutson. The ground commander of the recovery force noted that it took about six days to find the crash site because of poor weather. The recovery team had to rappel in and lift the bodies out on ropes. The mountainous area and turbulent winds did not allow the team to land any rotary aircraft. Note: One source mentions this aircraft was shot down, while another claims the crash was non-hostile.

    Kenny we raised hell in Plant City without getting in trouble. I was so happy when you contacted me in Panama. It was great to see a real friend from home. I couldn't wait to get on that old train and leave Panama City to spend the weekend with you, and your wife and son.

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.
