Final Mission of CAPT Fred O. Jackson Jr.

Pilot CAPT Fred O. Jackson Jr. and aircraft commander WO Terrence E. Ledden were crewmen on an AH-1 Cobra attack helicopter from Air Cavalry Troop, 11th Armored Cavalry. On September 9, 1969, they were assisting on an enemy contact made during an aerial recon west of Loc Ninh, Binh Long Province, RVN. While reconning with another scout aircraft, they were taken under .51 caliber enemy anti-aircraft fire. Hit by several rounds, their disabled helicopter dropped from the sky, exploding on impact, killing them instantly. [Taken from the book American Warrior by J.C. Bahnsen Jr.]
