Terry was my buddy and roommate his last year in Vietnam

About a month before my 12 month tour in Vietnam ended and I returned to the US to separate from the active duty Army, Terry didn't return from a day trip to Saigon. He'd gone to get a US Passport in order to return to Australia. I believe he'd met a girl and wanted to return to see her. I worried about him all night.
The next day I was told of his death and how it happened.
Terry and I had had many good times together (even though we worked 11 out of every 14 days.
He was a very good looking guy, and knew it. He couldn't pass a mirror without checking himself out, and if necessary, he'd comb his hair. I'd comment, and we'd both laugh at this habit.
At one point we were allowed to partition the barracks into rooms. We had two 2-man rooms with 2 double bunks in one, and 4 chairs plus all our stereo equipment in the other. The 4 of us listened to a lot of 50's and 60's music at night as we wound down.
I have thought of him often. I also think about how his mom and dad must have grieved for him.
I'd like to think that if he had lived that we would still be friends. Rich

Final Mission of SP5 Terry W. Dickerhoff

On April 1, 1969, a U.S. Army helicopter UH-1H (tail number 66-17042) from the120th Command Aviation Company, "The Underdogs,". crashed shortly after takeoff from Tan Son Nhut Air Base Complex in Gia Dinh Province, RVN. Six U.S. personnel perished in the crash, including the entire crew of the aircraft plus two passengers aboard. There were three survivors. The lost crewmen included aircraft commander CW2 Michael G. Taylor, pilot WO1 Dale A. Yateman, crew chief SP4 Philip C. Stafford, and gunner SP4 Barry L. Golden. The lost passengers were SP5 Terry W. Dickerhoff and SP5 Rex E. Rader. The flight had just departed from Hotel 3 Heliport at Tan Son Nhut and climbed to approximately 500 feet of altitude when it suffered an engine failure. The pilots attempted autorotation, however, the autorotation was unsuccessful, ending in a crash and fire. The main rotor blade of the helicopter struck a telephone pole before the aircraft made ground contact, with the tail striking first, severing the tail boom. The fuselage section continued forward, coming to rest on its right side and completely engulfed in flames. Two bodies were discovered outside the wreckage along the path of the aircraft.
