Final Mission of CAPT Warren L. Anderson

On the night of January 13, 1966, a C-123B transport (tail number 55-4519) of the 310th Air Commando Squadron was providing flareship support for a flight of A-1E Skyraiders from the 1st ACS. The Skyraiders in turn were attacking Vietcong positions near An Khe. As one of the Skyraiders pulled off target after delivering ordnance it collided with the circling flareship. Both aircraft crashed. There were no survivors. The crew from the C-123B included pilot CAPT Herman H. Ritchie, copilot CAPT Warren L. Anderson, SSGT Byron H. Crotwell, TSGT Thomas A. Fodaro, SSGT Edward J. Hincewicz, and TSGT Irwin L. Hoffman. The pilot of the A-1E was CAPT Robert N. Middlebrooks. [Taken from virtualwall.com and aviation-safety.net]

TO A TRUE AMERICAN HERO

As a Vietnam War Era veteran, I acquired the MIA bracelet for "Captain Warren Anderson 4-26-66" after being honorably discharged from 4 years service in 1972 and have kept it close to my heart hoping that he would be found... http://www.pownetwork.org/bios/a/a016.htm

An old Australian Aboriginal Proverb states:

“We are all visitors to this time, this place. We are just passing through. Our purpose here is to observe, to learn, to grow, to love... and then we return home.”

I hope Captain Anderson has returned home in spirit for he lives on in each of us who have been touched by his sacrifice...

Remembering An American Hero

Dear Captain Warren Lester Anderson, 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, Sir

Curt Carter
