Final Mission of 1LT Robert E. Holdeman

On November 25, 1967, pilot COL Lewis H. Abrams and bombardier/navigator 1LT Robert E. Holdeman were the crewmen of a U.S. Marine Corps A-6A Intruder (#152612), callsign Packard, from Fighter Attack Squadron (All Weather) 242 (VMA[AW]-242), Marine Aircraft Group 11 (MAG-11),1st Marine Aircraft Wing (1st MAW), on a single aircraft night strike mission against the Kien An Airfield near Haiphong, NVN. An EA-6A electronic countermeasure (ECM) aircraft and three F-4B fighter-bombers flew in support of the mission. At 4:25 AM, COL Abrams radioed that they had crossed the coast of North Vietnam and were on track for the target. The ECM aircraft remained on station until 4:57 AM with no further contact with Abrams. They reported that no anti-aircraft artillery or surface-to-air missile firings were observed during the time they orbited the proposed track for the target run. A sea-air rescue mission for the missing Intruder was conducted along the ingress and egress routes of the mission strike with negative results. Both Abrams and Holdeman were place in Missing in Action status. In 1995, a Joint Task Force-Full Accounting (JTF-FA) search and recovery mission excavated a crash site and recovered remains and other items that were consistent with the loss of Abrams’ A-6A. Equipment found at the site indicated that both crewmen were in the aircraft at the time of impact. The human remains were repatriated and positively identified in June 1997. Abrams was promoted to Lieutenant Colonel and Holdeman was promoted to Major during the time they were missing. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org]

Maj Robert E Holdeman

I remmember the times going through Nabigation school together at Cherry Point and the many flights all over the U.S. and over the Med out of Morocco. Our fishing trips to Morehead city. I was flying over Muncie one day and landed and looked up Holdeman in the phone book. I called a number I found and heard that you had been reported MIA that day.
