Air Loss

On Saturday, June 17, 1967, a USAF Lockheed C-130B Hercules transport plane, serial number 60-0293, from the 772nd Troop Carrier Squadron with 49 passengers and seven crewmen aboard, was destroyed in a takeoff accident at An Khe Airfield in Binh Dinh Province, RVN. The aircraft was enroute to Pleiku when it developed a mechanical failure while departing. When the Hercules was nearing decision speed on take-off, the aircraft drifted to the left side of the runway. The crew brought the plane back onto the flight strip, but ran out of runway, sliding down an embankment where it burst into flames. None of the crewmen were lost in the crash, however, 34 of the passengers were killed; 15 survived. Of the 34 fatalities, 17 were U.S. military personnel, comprising of ten Army and seven Air Force members. The lost soldiers were SGT John E. Bernard, SP5 Robert L. Clukey Jr., SGT Howard E. Hurst, PSGT George T. Murray, SP5 Thomas R. Raschel, MAJ Benjamin F. Robertson Jr., 1LT James P. Schueller, MAJ Edward E. Strombeck, SSGT Willie L. Thigpen, and 2LT John W. Vaughan; the lost airmen included CAPT Herman G. Ebbinga, CAPT James R. Jones, LTC Paul F. Kiecker, 1LT Dennis S. Pazdan, MAJ Maurice A. Shaff Jr., TSGT William B. Weikal Jr., and SSGT Charles E.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear 1LT James Patrick Schueller, 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, Sir

Curt Carter

Local Soldier Has 2 Jobs in Vietnam

A Marshfield soldier, who is serving in South Vietnam, has found something to keep himself busy where he is not fighting the Viet Cong.
First Lt. James Schueller, 24, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Schueller, Route 2, Marshfield, recently established a teaching program in the village of An Khe, which is located near Saigon.

"During my spare time, I was able to set up a teaching program," he said in a letter to his parents. "I teach English to 46 seventh graders one hour a day.

"When I am on an operation away from my base camp, there are several other soldiers willing to teach in my absence."

Schueller wrote, "I have also taught them a few American sports and they have become very good softball players."

"Helping the Vietnamese in my own little way makes this combat tour pass much quicker and definitely more interesting. By associating with the people, I have picked up a good part of the language which is most important in order to understand them."

Schueller also reported that he has been invited by the village school director to attend some native banquets and rituals which he termed, "most exciting."

He is a forward observer with B Battery, 2nd Battalion, 17th Artillery, 1st Cavalry.

A 1960 Marshfield Senior High School graduate, Schueller attended Wisconsin State University at River Falls and Stevens Point before entering the service in April, 1964.

He received his basic training at Ft. Leonard Wood, MO, where he won two letters of recommendation - one for attaining the highest score of anyone in his battalion (991 men) on a physical test, and the other for being the leader of the squad which achieved the highest overall average of the battalion's 64 squads.

The soldier received advanced individual training at Ft. Know, KY, and then returned to Ft. Leonard Wood where he was promoted to platoon sergeant while awaiting to go to officer's candidate school.

After being commissioned a second lieutenant in September, 1965, Schueller volunteered for jump school and was, in turn, assigned as training officer in the basic training center at Ft. Benning, GA.

Schueller arrived in Vietnam in July, 1966, and was promoted to his present rank in November, 1966. He will return home in July and expects to return to college in the fall.
