Thank You

Dear CWO Martin Loving, Thank you for your service as an Image Interpretation Tech. Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart. 45 years ago today, the president declared it the end of the war. It was not. Time passes quickly. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

Final Mission of CWO Martin E. Loving

The Lockheed YO-3 Quiet Star was an American single-engine, propeller-driven aircraft that was developed for battlefield observation during the Vietnam War. It was designed to be as quiet as possible, and was intended to observe troop movements in near-silence during the hours of darkness. The aircraft was fitted with a Night Vision Aerial Periscope. YO-3A missions were of the nocturnal type, overflying roads, rivers and jungle areas frequented or controlled by the Viet Cong. Once targets were pinpointed, artillery, helicopter gunships or strike groups like the Navy’s “Black Ponies” were vectored in. On June 6, 1971, a YO-3A (#69-18004) from the 73rd Aviation Company with CWO Carl W. Borchers and CWO Martin E. Loving aboard crashed for undisclosed reasons ten miles east of Bien Hoa City, Bien Hoa Province, RVN. Both airmen suffered fatal injuries in the crash. The aircraft did not burn. Loving was about to rotate home and asked pilot Borchers for a ride. Loving, an image interpretation technician, took the place of the scheduled observer. There was a coordinated search for the aircraft when it became overdue. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org, thewall-usa.com, and wikipedia.org]
