Never forgotten

Larry, I still cherish your friendship, and memories of comradery in flight school. We had some great times. It was good seeing you that day on the ramp in Chu Lai (I think it was Chu Lai). I saw the smoke, and listened to the radio chatter that day, not knowing that you were involved. I'll see you again brother. Slainte.

Final Mission of WO1 Larrie J. Landersheim

Final Mission of WO1 Larrie J. Landersheim
On May 23, 1970, a U.S. Army helicopter UH-1H (tail number 68-15628) from B Company, 158th Assault Helicopter Battalion, was conducting a visual reconnaissance in support of Operation Barber Glade south of Khe Sanh in Quang Tri Province, RVN, when it was shot down by a hostile ground force. The aircraft was flying at about 40 feet of altitude and 45 knots of speed when a rocket-propelled grenade went through the tail boom, damaging the driveshaft and causing the helicopter to crash and burn. Six U.S. personnel and two Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN) personnel were killed in the incident. The lost Americans included pilots WO1 George F. Barry Jr. and CPT Eugene S. Miller, crew chief SP4 William H. Vaught III, and gunner SP4 Stephen J. Perkins; also lost were passengers MAJ Shane N. Soldato and WO1 Larrie J. Landersheim.

Forever in my thoughts.

Larry, it's been 44 years today, May 23rd, since you went down in that Huey. I'll never forget that conversation with your beloved Grandmother. You're together now. I so wish it had been different.

Remembering an American Hero

Dear WO Larrie John Landersheim, 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
