Gene, my first cousin

I too would like to express my heart felt thanks to Gene for his service and tremendous sacrifice for our country. I am a retired Army LTC, an infantry officer and Master Army Aviator with 21 years service with two combat tours in Vietnam.

I was in Germany at the time of Gene's accident, between Vietnam tours. Our grandmother, Susan Barrow West died of a heart attack shortly after receiving the news of Gene's death, and of course the whole family was heart broken.

We lose many good men in war and those of us who made it through often look back and remember our good friends and family members who gave it their all. I am proud to be an American who provided some service and sacrifice for our great country. Gene is one of us and I remember him often.

Final Mission of LTC Carroll G. Hogeman

On the evening of November 26, 1966, a Douglas U.S. Air Force C-47D (# 44-76574), a wing transport aircraft assigned to the 388th Tactical Fighter Wing at Korat RTAFB, Thailand, departed from Tan Son Nhut Air Base near Saigon on a nighttime administrative flight with 25 Air Force personnel headed to Korat Royal Thai AFB in Thailand. The C-47 made a normal take off and climbout. About five minutes after takeoff, the aircrew advised Tan Son Nhut they had an engine problem and were returning to that airfield. The pilot radioed radar control that he had a rough #1 engine. He received a vector course to steer. Shortly thereafter, the pilot reported he had to feather #1. Soon he reported the field in sight and was cleared for a straight in, downwind approach. Next he called the control tower reporting he could not get his landing gear fully down and locked. A witness later said only the left gear was down. This gear trouble undoubtedly added severely to his unsymmetrical drag and control problem. The tower first saw the plane turning slowly left away from the field at very low altitude, then stall, wing over and suddenly plunge to earth. Witnesses observed a steep, violent, crushing impact in a rice paddy followed instantly by a fierce fire. The time was about 1850 hours. Twenty-five airmen were lost in the crash, including CAPT Karl D. Sobolik, A2C Lawrence A. Barcklow, A2C Troy Bealin, A1C Hardy L. Bell, SMS Earl K. Burns Jr., MSGT Dieter W. Dietz, 1LT Charles L. Faulkner, 1LT Harold L. Graves, LTC Carroll G. Hogeman, CAPT John R. Humphrey, CAPT Edward L. Kerr, MSGT Marchelle R. Lanzone, MSGT William A. Lynch Jr., LTC Norman W. McRobie, A1C James E. Oxley, 1LT Adrian F. Purnell, 1LT Alden L. Riley, CWO Alan R. Steffen, SSGT Walter Suhar, MAJ Joe H. Trickey Jr., TSGT Jesse L. Waltman, CAPT James E. Webb, LTC Paul R. West, SSGT Bobby L. Williams, and SSGT Dennis P. Wright. [Taken from togetherweserved.com and aviation-safety.net]
