My Room Mate

When I arrived at Travis AFB in Feb. of 1970, I was assigned to Allen’s dorm room. It was my first duty assignment and I was as green as could be. Allen’s hospitality and kindness were overwhelming. He treated me like a long lost brother. What a great guy. So sorry for his family’s loss.

Final Mission of A1C Allen J. Bodin

On November 27, 1970, a U.S. Air Force Fairchild C-123K Provider (#55-4574) from the 19th Tactical Airlift Squadron was enroute to Nha Trang from Tan Son Nhat when it went missing in central South Vietnam with 79 personnel on board (six U.S. and 73 Vietnamese). It was last heard from shortly after takeoff when there appeared to be no problems aboard. Search and rescue for the missing aircraft was hampered by bad weather. On December 7, 1970, the Provider was found in mountainous terrain approximately 17 miles southwest of Nha Trang in Khanh Hoa Province, RVN, where it had struck some trees on a ridge at an elevation of 4600 feet, some 500 feet below the top. A para-rescue team was inserted into the area but found no survivors. The lost Americans included aircraft commander 1LT Marvin S. Arthington, co-pilot 1LT Frederick M. Rader III, navigator MAJ Robert L. Baker, flight engineer TSGT William B. O’Kieff, loadmaster A1C Allen J. Bodin, and combat photographer A1C Frederick R. Neef. Bodin was posthumously promoted to Sergeant. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and aviation-safety.net]
