Final Mission of SP4 William J. Montgomery

On Tuesday, May 5, 1964, a de Havilland Canada CV-2B Caribou (#61-2593) from the 61st Aviation Company, U.S. Army Support Command Vietnam, Military Assistance Command, Vietnam (MACV), crashed in a rice paddy shortly after takeoff from Tan Hiep Air Base, Dinh Tuong Province, South Vietnam. The aircraft suffered a failure of the #1 engine, suspected to be from hostile small arms fire which was compounded when the crew turned into the feathered engine in an attempt to return to Tan Hiep airstrip, where they had just picked up several passengers. The aircraft’s left wing stalled, rolled inverted, and crashed before a recovery could be completed. Those aboard included pilot CAPT William C. Osborn, co-pilot WO1 George R. Graham, crew chief SP4 Carmine A. Cervellino, flight engineer SP5 Donald L. Nelson, SP4 Clair D. Doty, PFC Carl W. Grimes, MAJ Courtney P. Hollar Jr., SP4 William J. Montgomery, SP5 Frank Thornton Jr., and 5 ARVN passengers killed. [Taken from armyaircrews.com]

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 William John Montgomery, 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
