Final Mission of SP4 Machughlen Meece

Final Mission of SP4 Machughlen Meece
On May 5, 1966, SP4 Machughlen Meece was a door gunner on a U.S. Army helicopter UH-1C (tail number 65-09433) from D Troop, 3/4 Cavalry (Air), 25th Infantry. While attacking an enemy target in a close air support operation, the aircraft came under hostile enemy fire while flying at an elevation of approximately 35 feet and air speed of 105 knots. Small arms fire (AK-47) raked the right side of the helicopter, with at least three rounds striking the aircraft and causing fatal injuries to SP4 Meece. The helicopter was able to continue flight and was later repaired in theatre. [Taken from vhpa.org]

Remembering an American Hero

Dear SP4 Machughlen Meece, 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
