  • Final Mission of CAPT James J. Crawford

    Posted on 4/20/16 - by
    On February 18, 1972, a USN F-4J Phantom II (#157266) from the USS Constellation was on a mission in southern Laos when it was hit by AAA during its pull-up from an attack run. The aircrew was attempting to return to the damaged aircraft to the carrier when the hydraulics failed on approach. The Phantom crashed into the Gulf of Tonkin, 75 miles north-east of DMZ, North Vietnam. Pilot LT Bruce P. Rowe was killed in the incident. Radar Intercept Officer (RIO) LTJG D. L. Spence successfully ejected and was rescued. [Taken from]

    Dear LT Bruce Phillip Rowe, 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

    If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.
