I remember Glenn
Thank you for your service as a Huey, UH-1 Helicopter Repairer. It is Labor Day weekend, and we remember you all. It has been too long, and it's about time for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.
Remembering An American Hero
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
Last Mission of U.S. Army helicopter UH-1B tail number 62-02056
CW2 Bobby R. Williams (KIA) and I were both vying for the next fire team leader slot. For some unknown reason operations swapped his crew for mine and put them in the aircraft I had been flying the night before they were shot down. The pilot WO1 Richard G. Lewis (KIA) had been in country a few months, SP5 Glenn T. Fey (KIA) had been transferred from the 134th AHC two weeks prior and PFC Jerome E. Jacobs (KIA) was I believe a postal clerk who was working his tail off to be a door gunner. It is believed they were hit by an RPG on the right side of the aircraft; I have a photo of the aircraft in the air right after they were hit and it shows no damage to the left side. I heard the elapsed time from when the aircraft was hit until it was completely burned was only four minutes. We know that at least part of the crew was alive prior to impact because they were keying the radio while using the intercom. This was a heavy (48 rockets) and evidently they were unable to jettison the pods prior to impact. The aircraft burned with all hands. The next day I took the dental records to morgue to help with identification of the remains. Story by Jim McLaughlin [Taken from vhpa.org]
