  • Final Mission of CPT William J. Tebow

    Posted on 2/15/18 - by
    On October 26, 1965, a pair of U.S. Marine F-4B Phantom II aircraft from Marine Fighter Attack Squadron 115 (VMFA-115), Marine Aircraft Group 11 (MAG-11), 1st Marine Aircraft Wing (1st MAW), were returning to Da Nang Air Base from a night combat mission with one jet reporting engine trouble. At 2148 hours, the two aircraft flew into the side of Monkey Mountain in Quang Nam Province, RVN, possibly distracted by the engine problem and low visibility. Both pilots and Radar Interceptor Officers (RIO’s) were killed instantly, and both aircraft were totally destroyed. The lost crewmen were pilots CPT William J. Tebow and 1LT John B. McHale, and RIO’s 1LT William R. Gendebien and CWO2 John R. Petty Jr. All remains were recovered. [Taken from]

    I served with Captain Tebow in Cherry Point NC in VMFA 115. I was with him in Boca Chica, Florida flying hot pad duty between the keys and Cuba. We deployed with the unit to Yatsugi, Japan in June 1965 and finally Iwakuni the following month. In Septemebr 1965 we deployed to Danang, Vietnam. I think of him often and miss him. In September 28, 2015, I honored his memory at the Fallen Heroes of Georgia Golf Tournament that help to support scholarship funds for families of fallen heroes. It was my honor to remember him in this way.

  • Sympathy Card

    Posted on 11/10/14 - by Frances Tebow Bowen
    Captain Tebow was my Dad. I remember soon after he died, we received many sympathy cards from our family, neighbors, friends and acquaintances. But, I remember one especially from a stranger. It was signed, "From a grateful fellow American."

    My Dad died for his fellow Marines and his country, that allowed him to worship his God. He died so that his family would have all of the freedoms his ancestors came to this country seeking. But most of all he died for ALL of his fellow Americans and their rights.

    We are proud of you Dad and I hope that we would have made you proud. I'll see you soon in heaven.
