Cousin Jimmy I still miss you.

The older I am the more I realize time gets away from you. Jimmy was my favorite cousin but being much younger when we were together he hung more with my sister Diane. Jimmy being Jimmy, let me tag along. Teen years tend to be self indulgent and I missed so much time I wish I could get back. I think of you and Diane a lot wish I knew more of you time in service. I and my sister both served but not in country. Anyone wishing to share stories or pictires please feel free to email me. I am trying to do a military family tree with pics. Love You Jimmy.

Final Mission of WO1 James L. Paul

WO1 James L. Paul, co-pilot, and WO1 Carl M. Wood, pilot, were flying a U.S. Army helicopter AH-1G Cobra gunship (#66-15340) from D Troop, 3rd Squadron, 5th Cavalry, on an extraction mission on February 5, 1971, in the general vicinity of Khe Sanh, Military Region 1, RVN. Shortly after the start of the extraction, WO1 Paul's aircraft entered a heavy cloud cover which forced the pilot to go IFR (on instruments) to climb out of the weather. It was during the climb that the Cobra impacted a mountainside and exploded. Aircraft accompanying the Cobra immediately began a visual reconnaissance of the area and sighted the crash. Ground search teams were inserted and a 50-meter area surrounding the crash was searched. The search indicated there had been a violent explosion upon impact. WO1 Wood's remains were recovered from the wreckage of the aircraft. Weather delayed further search until February 10, 1971, during which a baseball cap containing Paul’s name, a watch, part of a ring and map and a chinstrap were found one meter from the wreckage. The team also discovered an unidentifiable hand under the wreckage. The search was discontinued, and from all indications, it was determined that Paul was dead.
