Former Crewmember

I served with George in B Company and flew with him some. We were in different fire teams.George was the senior Warrant in the guns, a CW-2 on his second tour in RVN. I was on my first tour and looked up to him as a mentor and hero. The day he was killed was gut wrenching and the losses never got easier. We've got your wing GeorgeGeorgeGeorge.

Final Mission of CW2 George A. Grinnell

On July 21, 1969, a U.S. Army helicopter AH-1G Cobra (tail number 67-15539) from B Company (Diamondhead), 25th Aviation Battalion, collided with a UH-1D helicopter (tail number 66-00897) Command & Control ship, resulting in the deaths of the Cobra crew. The lost crewmen included aircraft commander CW2 George A. Grinnell and pilot WO1 Robert D. Staggs. The accident occurred during a combat mission in Hau Nghia Province. The AH-1G aircraft was observed to strike the UH-1D aircraft in its right aft section while the UH-1D was flying level at approximately 1200 feet. The main rotor head of the AH-1G separated at the mast and the aircraft was observed to fall to the ground and burst into flames. The two crew members aboard the AH-1G sustained fatal injuries. The UH-1D aircraft was observed to make an autorotation which terminated in a hard landing. All personnel aboard the UH-1D sustained non-fatal injuries. The UH-1D did not burn. [Taken from vhpa.org]
