Final Mission of 1LT Harold B. Kimbrough

On September 22, 1970, a U.S. Marine Corps helicopter CH-46D (tail number 152577), designated ET-13, from Marine Medium Helicopter Squadron 262 (HMM-262), was on a night medivac mission when it had an engine fire at approximately 2,500 feet. The aircraft totally burned before impact. All on board were killed. The lost crewmembers included aircraft commander 1LT Harold B. Kimbrough, pilot 1LT William S. Davis, crew chief SGT Leo A. Beach Jr., gunner CPL Frederick J. Smith, and crewman CPL James R. Teffs. The aircraft crashed near a Republic of Korea (ROK) compound which messaged that a chopper had gone down in flames and that they were going to try to secure the area. There were three helicopters on this mission. ET-13 was the chase bird (third aircraft) in the flight. While the lead aircraft went into the landing zone to make the pick-up, ET-13 circled at a distance. The Air Force was dropping parachute flares to light up the area for the pick-up. The pilot of the lead aircraft believed that a parachute flare struck ET-13 and brought it down. [Taken from popasmoke.com]

Remembering An American Hero

Dear 1LT Harold Bruce Kimbrough, 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, Sir

Curt Carter
