Ground Casualty

PFC Robert Flores Jr. was a Card and Tape Writer serving with Headquarters and Headquarters Company (HHC), 54th General Support Group, 1st Logistical Command, U.S. Army, Republic of Vietnam. His duties included handling administrative records and data processing operations. However, if Flores’ unit encountered driver shortages, it was sometimes necessary to put clerks, NCO's, or mechanics in the driver’s seat in order to move priority cargo or conduct other needed transportation responsibilities. On October 10, 1969, Flores was operating a tow truck on Tuy Hoa Air Base in Khanh Hoa Province, RVN, when the vehicle was hit by a jet attempting a landing. The aircraft, a U.S. Air Force North American F-100D Super Sabre (#55-3642) from the 308th Tactical Fighter Squadron, reportedly overran the landing strip and collided with Flores’ wrecker. He suffered fatal injuries in the incident. The pilot survived; the Super Sabre was damaged beyond repair. Flores was posthumously promoted to Corporal.
