Reflections on Sonny Primm's service and sacrifice

As a band-mate to Sonny in LSU Tiger Band's trumpet section, and as an Army veteran, I remain thankful each day for the ultimate sacrifice made by Sonny and so many others in defense of freedom and in the wars against tyranny. I recall Sonny sold his prized trumpet affording a ring for his bride, Kathy. The service and sacrifice of such individuals can not be over valued by all of who receive the benefit of the protections they provided...God bless the Primm family and all our service members!

Final Mission of 2LT Severo J. Primm III

On February 5, 1973, about a week after the signing of the Paris Peace Agreement, an EC-47Q aircraft was shot down over Saravane Province, Laos, about 50 miles east of the city of Saravane. The crew of the aircraft consisted of the pilot, CAPT George R. Spitz, co-pilot 2LT Severo J. Primm III, CAPT Arthur R. Bollinger, 1LT Robert E. Bernhardt, SGT Dale Brandenburg, SGT Joseph A. Matejov, all listed as crew members, and SGT Peter R. Cressman and SSGT Todd M. Melton, both systems operators. The families of all aboard the aircraft were told the men were dead, and advised to conduct memorial services. It is known that Cressman and Matejov were members of Detachment 3, 6994th Security Squadron from Ubon, Thailand. The aircraft, however, was flying out of the 361st TEW Squadron (Tactical Electronic Warfare Squadron) at Nakhon Phanom Airbase, Thailand. Primm, Melton, Spitz, Brandenburg and Bernhardt were assigned to the 361st TEW Squadron. Bollinger's unit is unknown. The men in the 6994th were highly trained and operated in the greatest of secrecy. They were not allowed to mingle with others from their respective bases, nor were the pilots of the aircraft carrying them on their missions always told what their objective was. They were cryptology experts, language experts, and knew well how to operate some of the Air Force's most sophisticated equipment. They were the first to hear the enemy's battle plans.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear 1LT Severo James Primm III, 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
