Remembering An American Hero

Dear WO Leonard Eugene Easley, 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

Final Mission of WO1 Leonard E. (Gene) Easley

I wasn't flying that day, but I remember that Gene was the AC flying with WO Hugh Johnson who was the pilot. It was near Tam Ky and Gene's aircraft was one of three ships in a heavy fire team. The team was led by CAPT Ted Kearns who was the gunship section leader. I think the third aircraft was being AC'd by Jim McGuire. There was a single round that came into the aircraft from the right side and struck Gene in the neck. Hugh Johnson flew the aircraft back to a medical facility. I don't know the tail number of the aircraft, but all we had at that time were UH1B's for the guns and UH1D's for the slicks. I don't know exactly what happened but the aircraft was in a right turn after a gun run and the single round either came in thru the window or the open cargo area and struck Gene in the neck. I don't recall hearing that the round even struck the aircraft, so there probably won't be a maintenance report available that would help find the tail number.
