Final Mission of SGT Daniel M. Bennett

On November 14, 1966, a U.S. Marine Corps helicopter UH-1E (tail number 151873) from Marine Observation Squadron 6 (VMO-6) was shot down during a strafing run while attempting to neutralize enemy guns that had already claimed Marine aircraft earlier in the day. While on its gunnery run, 873 was hit (pilot CAPT Leon G. Chadwick III was fatally shot during the gun run) and crashed in flames. Two other crewmembers, CPL Rodolfo M. Gonzalez and SGT Daniel M. Bennett, were killed either by the enemy fire or the crash. The fourth crewmember, co-pilot COL Kenneth L. Reusser, the MAG-16 Commanding Officer [and three-war aviation hero] miraculously survived the crash and enemy fire and was rescued by a Marine from a nearby patrol. COL Reusser was taken from the zone to Hill 55 by an armored vehicle, then to the Naval Hospital by helicopter, later evacuated to Bethesda Naval Hospital in serious condition.
