My Cousin

Kenneth, I was only 12 years old when you were killed in Vietnam. I remember going to the funeral. I remember how strong Carol was during the service. Your parents and grandparents missed you so much. I think of you every Memorial Day! Your sacrifice will always be remembered.
Love, your cousin Pat

Final Mission of CAPT Kenneth J. Hoffman

On July 25, 1968, a C-7B Caribou (#63-9761) cargo aircraft from the 457th Tactical Airlift Squadron, 483rd Tactical Airlift Wing, 7th Air Force, based at Cam Ranh Bay, crashed near the junction highways QL-19 and QL-14 near Pleiku when the pilot lost control as it was flying close to the stall. The aircraft struck a tree and fell to the ground, killing two of the four crew. The lost crew members included CAPT Kenneth J. Hoffman and flight engineer A1C Gary R. McKendrick.

Long ago

I went to Harpur College at the same time Ken was there, a year behind him. We were in the same Art Appreciation class which meant we spent our time looking at slides the prof showed and trying to sketch them and take notes about them. Really boring but that was what the test was to name the slide. One time, there was a pretty big test and Ken wasn't there so I kept calling his dorm to wake him up. Guess he was out late, but he got up and took the test after I made sure someone got him up. In those days, girls were not allowed in the guys' dorms. We sort of had the same friends, went to the same parties and he even dated a pretty good friend of mine. I missed his funeral because I was out of town and no one could get ahold of me.
