Final Mission of SP6 Norman F. Evans

On November 24, 1970, a RU-6A Beaver (#53-03724) from 156th Aviation Company ASA (Army Security Agency), 224th ASA Aviation Battalion, 509TH ASA Group, was landing following electronic maintenance tests when it was hit by an ascending ARVN UH-1H helicopter based in Soc Trang, RVN. The four crewmen of the Beaver and all of the crew and passengers aboard the ARVN helicopter were killed. The lost U.S. personnel included CW2 Robert D. Perry, CWO Warren H. Mobley, SP6 Norman F. Evans, and TSGT Paul G. Kelley (USAF). TSGT Kelley was assigned to the 1131st Special Activities Squadron, which had several detachments in South Vietnam, Thailand, and Laos. This was a Special Ops squadron. [Taken from togetherweserved.com and coffeltdatabase.org]

We served together

I served with SP6 Evans, he was a radio operator flying U-6 Beaver aircraft, 156th Aviation Co. We pulled guard duty a number of times during our tour. He told me about the loss of his brother. I recall the day of the crash with a Viet helicopter. I believe the tail number of his plane was 6724. One of our enlisted mechanics initially got in the aircraft for the ride around the airfield but, removed himself for the motor-pool officer who had never flown in a U-6. It was a sad day, the first loss of life close to us all.

Dear Uncle Norman

I think of you frequently as I have for the past 44 years since I last saw you. I think of the kindness you showed me and how you touched my heart and my life. I wish we could have all grown up with you in our lives, but I guess we did, because after all this time I am still touched by the person you are.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP6 Norman Francis Evans, 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
