Final Mission of SSGT Dale W. Farris

SSGT Dale W. Farris served with the 377th Air Base Wing at Phu Cat Air Base in Binh Dinh Province, RVN. On March 31, 1972, SSGT Farris was killed by an enemy rocket. The following is a personal account of the incident by Joseph Federmann: I was stationed at Phu Cat with Dale. The first day I was there the ROK (Republic of Korea Army) were firing their howitzers. I thought it was incoming and Dale said relax, nothing to worry about. On Good Friday, March 31st, I was working on a C-7 aircraft when a 122mm rocket came into the area where Dale was. Dale had come down to the flight line to supervise his troops. He had his back against a revetment wall and his bicycle parked about 5 feet from him. The rocket hit his bicycle and Dale was killed instantly. He was waiting on a C-130 to take him to Saigon for the Freedom Bird back to the states. It was his supposed to be his last day in Vietnam. (Narrative by Joseph Federmann, Mil. Ret.) [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org thewall-usa.com]

Remembering an American Hero

Dear SSGT Dale Wayne Farris, 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, for those who love you, and for the Sgt's son.



With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir



Curt Carter (son of Sgt. Ardon William Carter, 101st Airborne, died February 4, 1966, South Vietnam)
