Tribute to my Cousin Theodore W. Johnson

I only recall your memory of you when you came to visit our Family Picnic at the Lake House in Chautauqua, New York. You were on your way to a war in Vietnam, we now know was based on lies. You and your 58,219+ Brothers and Sisters gave their all for a Lie. https://history.state.gov/milestones/1961-1968/gulf-of-tonkin

honoring you...

A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam
And for a brief moment its glory
and beauty belong to our world
But then it flies again
And though we wish it could have stayed...
We feel lucky to have seen it.

Final Mission of 1LT Theodore W. Johnson

On the morning of November 17, 1967, a U.S. Air Force Douglas EB-66C Destroyer from the 41st Tactical Electronic Warfare Squadron, 355th Tactical Fighter Wing, departed Takhli Royal Thai Air Force Base for a mission over North Vietnam. Shortly after takeoff, the right engine failed, and the pilot, MAJ Max E. Nichols, performed his engine out procedures and prepared the aircraft and the crew for an emergency landing at Takhli. While the jet was on short final, it descended rapidly into rough ground about 1200 feet short of the runway, slid for a distance, caught fire, and exploded. Only two of the seven crewmen were able to escape the burning aircraft. The lost crew included MAJ Nichols, electronic warfare officers CAPT Rey L. Duffin and MAJ Karl D. Hezel, and navigators MAJ William McDonald and 1LT Theodore W. Johnson. The EB-66 reportedly had a history of engine problems. At or near max weight, hot climate, and the fact that the aircraft was very hard to control with one engine made a successful engine-out takeoff and landing a slim prospect.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear 1LT Theodore W Johnson, 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
