Worse Day of My Life

December 7th 1969 I was flying a Phantom 3 mission supporting the local Province military near Soc Trang RVN with WO1 Robert DeVinney flying from the front seat. We had just pulled up from a strafing attack in support of our lead aircraft when Bob was mortally wounded from enemy ground fire. I flew him as fast as possible to the nearest hospital at Bin Thuy AB but he never regained consciousness.

We Will Remember

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
