Seeing his photo

I have been wearing his MIA bracelet for many years now & will continue to do so. It was very nice to see his face. I would like his family to know that so long as I live & wear his bracelet, he will not be forgotten.

Casualty at Sea

The USS Navasota (AO-106) was a fleet oiler which replenished warships with fuel oil, aviation gasoline, and jet fuel. Sometime before midnight on February 4, 1966, the Navasota had refueled both the USS Brinkley Bass (DD-887) and the USS Waddell (DDG-24). After refueling, the two ships somehow got on a collision course with each other, which resulted in the Brinkley Bass ramming the Waddell very near her centerline. A repair team that had been dispatched to the Brinkley Bass from the Navasota was being flown back by a SH-3A (#149926) helicopter from the USS Ranger when the rotor blades begin to break apart, sending the helicopter into a spin and crashing into the ocean. The sailors survived the crash and could be seen swimming as they struggled to keep their heads above the stormy waters. Another helicopter was immediately dispatched to rescue the sailors, but as it approached the area where they were swimming, it also went down. It appeared to witnesses that the helicopter had gone down right on top of the sailors, but somehow it had miraculously missed hitting them. The surviving sailors were rescued by a third helicopter and flown to the Ranger where they were examined and treated for injuries. Three Navasota crewmen, however, were lost in the mishap: SFC Bernard J. Sparenberg, SF1 Glenn E. Asmussen, and SFM2 Dan D. McConnaughhay. Their remains were not recovered.
