Five Killed as Navy Plane Crashes

SAIGON (UPI)--A U. S. Navy patrol plane crashed while patrolling for submarines in the South China Sea off central Vietnam Tuesday, killing five of the 13-man crew. The eight survivors were rescued by the U. S. destroyer Maddox. A U. S. Navy spokesman at Sangley Point NAS in the Philippines discounted the possibility that the twin-engine P-2 Neptune aircraft had been shot down. A U. S. Navy spokesman in Saigon said the plane was on a routine anti-submarine patrol mission about 75 miles off the coast and 340 miles northeast of Saigon when it went down. In Washington, the Navy identified the five men lost. They were LCDR John C. Thomas, whose wife, Ruth, lives at the Marine Corps Air Station at Iwakuni, Japan. Aviation Structural Mechanic/1C Michael J. Ulicsni, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Ulicsni of Parkville, Minn. Aviation Machinist Mate/1C, Deloss W. Anderson, son of Mr. and Mrs. D. L. Anderson of Spokane, Wash. Aviation Ordnanceman/2C Donald F. Marit, husband of Mrs. Ruby Catherine Marit of Litchfield, Ill. Aviation Electrician's Mate/2C Weslie D. Newborn, husband of Mrs. Pauline Newborn of San Diego, Ca. [Taken from Pacific Stars & Stripes, September 11, 1964]

Remembering An American Hero

Dear AE1 Weslie David Mewborn, 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

Do not stand at my grave and weep

Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.

Mary Frye – 1932
