  • John , I will remember you as a friend at Nha Trang AB Vietnam.

    Posted on 1/26/15 - by tdlaroe39@yahoo.com
    John and I were friends at Nha Trang AB from May of 1965 to Aigust of 1965. We were sent to Vietnam together and spent a week at Clark AB in the Philippines training and then sent to Vietnam we were a group of some 1800 men to start up the Forward Air Control Group. We were suppose to be sent to PleiKu AB but when it was mortared in February of 1965, our group was split up at Saigon and John and I were in the half that went to Nha Trang AB to work on the O-1E Birddog aircraft. John was sent to work on the C-123 aircraft on the west side of the base and I was sent to work on five special C-123aircraft on the east side of the base . When the O-1E aircraft finally arrived in Vietnam I was sent to DaNang AB while John stayed at Nha Trang. When I was sent up to Hue airfield John was

    sent to DaNang to replace me. I was up at Dong Ha Airstrip when I heard of John's O-1E aircraft had gone down with John in the back seat. I am very sorry for the loss of John.

    Dear A1C John Irwin Cameron, 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

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.
