Final Mission of U.S. Marine Corps helicopter CH-46A tail number 152501

CAPT John A. House was the pilot of an CH46A helicopter carrying personnel assigned to Company A, 3rd Reconnaissance Battalion, 3rd Marine Division near the city of Phu Bai, South Vietnam on June 30, 1967. Among the passengers onboard the aircraft were members of Company A, LCPL Merlin R. Allen, LCPL John D. Killen III, and CPL Glyn L. Runnels. Also onboard was the company's hospital corpsman, HM3 Michael B. Judd. As the helicopter approached the landing zone, the aircraft was hit by small arms fire. The aircraft was severely damaged but was able to fly for about a half mile before it crash landed in a thick jungle canopy. Co-pilot Ted Pittman managed to escape along with two enlisted crew members and four of an eight man reconnaissance team. Prior to being rescued, two of the lesser injured reconnaissance team members returned to the scene of the crash and verified the crash scene. It was reported that CAPT House was not injured from fire or the crash, but tree branches stopped his exit from the helicopter and just before he was able to get free the aircraft exploded. Although some of the personnel aboard survived, House, Allen, Judd, Runnels, and Killen were never found, nor were remains recovered that could be identified as theirs. The four men were listed as killed in action, body not recovered. [Taken from vhpa.org]

Still Missing HM3 Judd

I have worn his name on my wrist since 1990. While in Navy as a Corpsman I was at the POWMIA wall service at Bethesda Naval Medical Center when he and all other Corpsmans were dedicated. Your Not forgotten and my son will wear it when I can't.
