Final Mission of TSGT Richard L. Foxx

CAPT Herbert W. Booth Jr. was a Dora Corn Forward Air Controller assigned to Detachment 2A, 1st Air Commando Group at Bien Hoa. He was flying U-10A Helio Courier (#62-5909) with TSGT Richard L. Foxx and Special Forces CAPT Terry D. Cordell when they were shot down at Buon Enao in Dar Lac Province, RVN, while supporting ARVN units. They were brought down by Viet Cong small arms ground fire when they flew low over the battlefield to support the ground units that were in combat. All three crewmen suffered fatal injuries in the incident. Booth and Foxx were members of the first detachment of "Jungle Jim" air commandos deployed to Vietnam, trained at Hurlburt Field in Florida, and code named "Farmgate." This group was the first to use Air Force Forward Air Controllers (FACs), using the call sign Dora Corn. Cordell was the commander of the Special Forces "A" Detachment at Buon Enao.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear TSGT Richard L Foxx, 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

Do not stand at my grave and weep

Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.

Mary Frye – 1932
