Final Mission of CPL Michael L. Harris

On November 2, 1969, a U.S. Army helicopter OH-6A (tail number 67-16419) from Headquarters & Headquarters Company (HHC), 2nd Brigade, 1st Cavalry Division, was on a reconnaissance mission when it was hit by a B-40 rocket while hovering near a tree line. The aircraft crashed and its three crewmen were killed. Army casualty reports state the attack occurred in Tay Ninh Province (III Corps). However, other handwritten evidence on Army files suggest that the downing of the aircraft actually took place just across the Cambodian border, about 8 miles northwest of Katum in northern Tay Ninh Province. The names of the three crewmen lost in this incident were pilot WO1 Leo C. Hester Jr., crew chief SP5 David F. Abbott, and gunner CPL Michael L. Harris. Two years earlier in March 1967, WO1 Hester’s father, LCDR Leo C. Hester Sr., was killed when the U.S. Navy VC-47J he was co-piloting crashed after losing a wing near Phan Rang. A total of 14 U.S. personnel died in that crash. The Hesters are one of three pairs of fathers and sons who died during the Vietnam War. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and pownetwork.org]
