Final Mission of 1LT Jerome Elkins

1LT Jerome Elkins was a U.S. Air Force Forward Air Controller serving with the 6250th Support Squadron, 6253rd Combat Support Group, 13th Air Force. On August 27, 1965, 1LT Elkins was piloting a USAF O-1E Bird Dog (# 57-6271) in support of U.S. Marines with an unknown Vietnamese observer during a visual reconnaissance mission just south of the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) over Quang Tri Province, RVN. Elkin’s aircraft never returned from the mission, and a later search found the crash site. The bodies of the two crewmen were recovered. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and fac-assoc.org]
