Mark and I were together in US Army Flight School

I met Mark in May of 1968, Fort Stewart, GA at our first day of flight school. The class photo from that day is on my wall. So is a photo of us in August of 1968. I think of Mark often and recall his humor. He was a good man and a good officer. I last saw Mark on January 14, 1969, the day we graduated and pinned our wings on. I miss him as I miss others in our class, friends, that did not return home.

Final Mission of CPT Mark A. Babson Jr.

On October 3, 1969, A U.S. Army OV-1C Mohawk (#61-2679) from the 225th Aviation Company piloted by CPT Mark A. Babson Jr. with SP4 James T. Savage on board failed to return from an infrared surveillance mission. A search and rescue operation was conducted for seven days with negative results. Both Babson and Savage were listed as Missing in Action. On September 12, 1970, the Mohawk was found where it had crashed into a ridgeline 25 miles northeast of Dalat. Both crewmen’s remains were recovered and identified. Savage was posthumously promoted to Sergeant. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org]

Thank you

I know your brother Billy Trout and to say he is a fine man misses the mark. He mentions you fondly and is very proud and grateful for the sacrifice you made for this country. Your sacrifice was not in vain and your memory lives on through Billy and those that know him. You gave everything and I am truly grateful for that. May you enjoy eternal rest in the presence of God Almighty
