Final Mission of SGT George D. Hutcheson

At approximately 7:50 PM on September 1, 1969, a CH-53A helicopter from Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 361 (HMH-361) was returning to Phu Bai after the completion of a resupply mission in the Rockpile area when it crashed in bad weather into Co Pung Mountain in Thua Thien Province, RVN. The last know contact with the aircraft was at 7:45 PM when Phu Bai approach cleared the aircraft for a direct approach. The aircraft acknowledged the clearance and was never heard from again. The wreckage was located September 3, 1969, but the search party was unable to reach the scene until September 4th due to deteriorating weather conditions and terrain. The remains of four crewmen were recovered by elements of 17th Cavalry, 101st Airborne Division, who were lowered to the site. The dead servicemen were removed to the U.S. Army mortuary in Da Nang where they were positively identified. They included CPT Donald W. Wright, 1LT Kent S. Anderson, SGT George D. Hutcheson, and LCPL Robert A. Marsh. One crewman, LCPL Julian Escobedo Jr., could not be located. The recovery team reported that the aircraft had impacted on an NVA bunker complex and there was a presence of an unknown number of enemy personnel in the immediate area of the mishap.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SGT George Dewey Hutcheson, 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, Sir

Curt Carter
