The name sounds so familiar, my Dad may have mentioned him in one of his stories from Long Hai. My Dad was Capt. David Tedrick Team CO for A-362 of 5th SFG at Long Hai 1971-1972. My Dad may have known him from Okinawa 1st SFG , my Dad volunteered to go from Okinawa to Vietnam. A tragic loss...

It has been 45 years this month of October since we evacuated Fred

I was a 19 year old Helicopter crew chief in Vietnam in 1972 with the 57th MedVac (Dust Off). I remember as if it was yesterday when I (the crew chief), the medic and two pilots were called on a hot mission, we spiral down with two Cobra helicopters flanking us, giving us fire support as we approach our landing. The ground was covered with dead and wounded Cambodian soldiers and a few trucks with bullet hole. we only had enough room in our Huey to evacuate the wounded, lots of them, there was one or two wounded Americans, then they brought the one American KIA, we made damn sure to make room for him, I grabbed him, and I placed him right in front of me. Although I had never known this young American soldier before, I could not help feeling deeply emotional for him, I sure have him etched in my mind to this day. When I think about Vietnam I think about him. For 35 years I did no know his name or anything about this soldier, just the memory of the mission when I saw him. One day I searched the internet and by knowing day of the my mission I found out that Fred George Mick was killed on that same day, and the discription on where and how he died fit what I saw in that field that tragic day. Today on this web site I found the first picture of Fred. Fred died in Vietnam and I lived, why?

Ron Cornell/Fred Mick

My dad, Ron Cornell, died a few years back, and I regret that I didn't ask him enough questions about his time in Vietnam, Okinawa, Berlin Det A, Ft. Bragg, etc. He told me the story of Fred Mick but never gave me much details of how he died - i know he escorted his body back to the states and not much more than that. He was just "dad" and not the green beret that sacrificed so much and was part of some amazing experiences, many of which I now know have great historical significance. I, of course, with my sister, lived most of those years with him going through all of that but it was just life and looking back the amazing things that he (and many people here) experienced weren't fully appreciated by me. Any stories you and others can share about him and others are appreciated and welcomed by me and undoubtedly by other children of special forces.

Hank Cramer - your name is very familiar and sounds like you knew my dad quite well. I have a lot of photos that I think you would appreciate and would be able to share with the right group of people. Can I email them to you? Send me an email at [email protected].
