Memorial Day, May 27, 2019

Dear WO Normand Paul Perron, sir.

As the American flag in our front yard flaps in the breeze, as my wife finishes the wreaths she makes for every Memorial Day, we have most of what we need to observe this Memorial Day. Yet, what we need most would be to have you and those whose names are inscribed on the Vietnam Memorial Wall with yours to be here as well. May we never forget the cost of our freedoms, and the men and women who have and continue to step forward to keep America safe.

With respect, sir.

Final Mission of WO1 Normand P. Perron

Final Mission of WO1 Normand P. Perron
On February 16, 1969, a U.S. Army helicopter UH-1D (tail number 66-16091) from the 57th Assault Helicopter Company was attempting to insert a Long-Range Reconnaissance Patrol (LRRP) team in a landing zone one mile northeast of Polei Kleng in Kontum Province, RVN, when the aircraft received an unknown number and type of hits from enemy ground fire. The pilot, WO1 Normand P. Perron, radioed on climb out that the controls were erratic. The aircraft then began a slow spiral descent and crashed, bursting into flames upon impact. All four of the crewmembers were killed as were the four LRRP team members aboard. The lost crewmen included WO1 Perron, aircraft commander WO1 Arthur L. Papale, crew chief SP4 Rick A. Oliver, and gunner SP4 Larry M. Alcos. The four lost Rangers were SGT Ralph G. Dunn, SP4 Gerald Q. Hancock, PFC Hugh R. McKinney, and SP4 Jack L. Rightmyer. Hancock was posthumously promoted to Sergeant and McKinney to Corporal. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and vhpa.org]
