On June 23, 1970, SP4 Jensen was a passenger in a U.S. Army CH-47A Chinook helicopter (#65-07966) that lost power on takeoff from a pickup zone three miles southeast of Suoi Do in Pleiku Province, RVN.

He was medically evacuated to the United States for treatment where he expired on August 25, 1970, at Brooke General Hospital at Fort Sam Houston, TX. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org]

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 Gary Edward Jensen, 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
