Final Mission of WO1 Bert M. Jenkins

SP5 Fred C. Jenkins was a welder in C Company, 725th Maintenance Battalion, 25th Infantry Division. On April 2, 1968, SP5 Jenkins died at the Cu Chi Base Camp in Hau Nghia Province, RVN, in what was described as a welding accident. While welding in the engine well of a military vehicle, an explosion occurred. The area he was working in filled with smoke and SP5 Jenkins was asphyxiated. He was 49 years-old. A year later, his son, U.S. Army pilot WO1 Bert M. Jenkins, was killed in action on April 28, 1969. The younger Jenkins was piloting a U.S. Army helicopter AH-1G tail (number 67-15835) from B Company, 1st Aviation Battalion, 1st Infantry Division, on a convoy ambush support mission between An Loc & Lai Khe along Highway QL-13. His aircraft came under enemy small arms fire at which time WO1 Jenkins suffered a gunshot wound to the head. The aircraft made an emergency landing with the co-pilot at the controls. Jenkins was evacuated to a military hospital where he succumbed to his wound. The Jenkins were one of three pairs of fathers and sons who died during the Vietnam War.
