Final Mission of 1LT Lynn R. Huddleston

At 0910 hours on September 26, 1967, 1LT Lynn R. Huddleston was the pilot of an O-1D reconnaissance aircraft on which SSGT Stephen J. Geist was the observer. Huddleston was from the 74th Aviation Company "Aloft", a recon aircraft company from the 145th Aviation Battalion. Geist was from Detachment A-332, 5th Special Forces Group. The aircraft left on a visual reconnaissance mission of the Minh Than area. A radio call was received by Detachment A-332 at 0930 hours from LT Huddleston. No coordinates were given. Again at 1030 hours, a call from LT Huddleston was monitored by Hon Quan Radar, and Huddleston gave his position as the vicinity of grid coordinates XT633739, or a few miles from the border of Cambodia just north of Minh Thanh. This was the last radio communication with the personnel aboard the O-1D. The plane never reached its destination. Search and rescue was initiated at 1310 hours, but was terminated 3 days later without any sightings of either the aircraft or its crew.

In memory of CPT. Huddleston

In high school, I wore CPT Huddleston's bracelet and still have it in my jewelry box. It was a difficult time for all Americans. He did not die in vain.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear Captain Lynn Ragle Huddleston, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter

If I should die...remembrances for CAPT. Lynn Ragle HUDDLESTON, USA...who gave his all for us!!!!!!!

If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.
