You were my first love and my last. I lost you in 1969 and I am now in my 80's. I look forward to seeing you again soon. Our two children turned out so wonderful you would be so proud, you also have two grandchildren who would have loved you as a grandpa. I miss you every day. Until we meet again God keep you safe in his arms, your devoted wife

Final Mission of TSG Kermit B. Roberts

On May 18, 1969, a United States Air Force Fairchild C-123K Provider from the 310th Special Operations Squadron was conducting an airlift mission of artillery ammunition when it was hit by 12.7 mm ground fire. With the wing burning, the crew headed for nearby Bien Hoa Air Base for an emergency landing. About 6 miles out, while crewmen valiantly attempted to jettison some of the 10,000 pounds of Class A explosives, time ran out and the wing folded, sending the Provider into the ground. Six airmen were lost in the crash. They included aircraft commander 1LT Neil W. Hayden, co-pilot 1LT Douglas M. Evans, flight engineers MSG Duane L. Hartenhoff and TSG Kermit B. Roberts, and loadmasters SGT Milton J. Bush and SSG Carl J. Wanner. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org, aviation-safety.net, and information provided by Dennis L. Allen (March 2000) at vvmf.org]
