Final Mission of SP4 John R. Gregoire
The pilot at the scene said they had been hit and lost power. The crew described hearing a loud noise followed by an engine failure over mountain terrain. The aircraft autorotated to a slope covered with small trees and brush. They had been transporting some grunts when it happened. One of them also confirmed that they had been shot down. SP4 Gregoire ran into the main rotor and suffered a fatal head injury. The three other crewmen escaped injury in the incident. [Taken from vhpa.org]
Still think about you and your family, Rick.
