Final Mission of 1LT Robert M. Lurie

On July 21, 1968, a U.S. Marine Corps helicopter UH-1E (tail number 154962) from Marine Observation Squadron 2 (VMO-2), with three crew members from Marine Light Attack Helicopter Squadron 167 (HMLA-167), was shot down near Hill 65, 11 miles southwest of Da Nang in Quang Nam Province (I Corps), RVN. It was reported that the aircraft received automatic weapons fire, crashed, and burned during a reconnaissance mission. It was speculated that aircraft went down after being hit because the hydraulics had been shot out and the pilot was unable to maintain flight. There were no survivors. The lost HMLA-167 crewmen aboard included aircraft commander 1LT Robert M. Lurie, co-pilot 1LT David L. Gloer, gunner SGT William H. Foster, and crew chief (from VMO-2) LCPL Jimmy L. Norsworthy. The tail rotor of the aircraft was found at a distance from the wreckage. It was reported that 1LT Lurie’s father was serving in Vietnam at the time of this incident, flying a C-117 flare ship on the DMZ and around I Corps. The father was one of the last enlisted pilots in the Marine Corps. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and popasmoke.com]

Remembering An American Hero

Dear 1LT Robert Michael Lurie, 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
