  • Final Mission of CAPT John P. Bartley

    Posted on 6/22/16 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    CAPT John P. Bartley and CAPT John F. Shaughnessy Jr. were fixed wing pilots assigned to Detachment 2A of the 1st Air Commando Group which was located at Bien Hoa Air Base. This unit flew several different types of aircraft including B-26s, T-28s, and C-47s in support of the South Vietnamese ground troops. On February 3, 1963, CAPT Bartley was the pilot and CAPT Shaughnessy the co-pilot of a B-26B (tail number 44-35692) which was shot down while conducting a strafing run against a Viet Cong unit in the Mekong Delta. Both Americans and their RVAF observer (name and rank unknown) were killed in the crash. [Taken from virtualwall.org]

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 10/16/13 - by Curt Carter
    Dear Captain John Peter Bartley, 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
