Final Mission of MAJ Clyde Seiler

Phan Rang Air Base was located five miles northwest of Phan Rang city in Ninh Thuan Province, RVN. Built by the Imperial Japanese Army around 1942, the airfield was used by the French Air Force during the First Indochina War, then abandoned in 1954. In 1965, the United States began rebuilding the airfield, and it was used by the U.S. Air Force and the Republic of Vietnam Air Force (RVNAF) during the Vietnam War. In October 1966, the 35th Tactical Fighter Wing moved to Phan Rang, taking over as the host unit. Missions included air support of ground forces, interdiction, visual and armed reconnaissance, strike assessment photography, escort, close and direct air support, and rapid reaction alert. On March 27, 1969, MAJ Clyde Seiler was flying a North American F-100C Super Sabre (#54-1897) fighter-bomber from the 120th Tactical Fighter Squadron (35th TFW) when he was shot down by enemy ground fire during a close air support mission approximately eleven miles southeast of Bien Hoa city in Bien Hoa Provice, RVN. Seiler was fatally injured in the incident. His body was recovered. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and vietnamairlosses.com]

Remembering An American Hero

Dear Major Clyde Seiler, 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
