Final Mission of MAJ Shane N. Soldato

On May 23, 1970, a U.S. Army helicopter UH-1H (tail number 68-15628) from B Company, 158th Assault Helicopter Battalion, was conducting a visual reconnaissance in support of Operation Barber Glade south of Khe Sanh in Quang Tri Province, RVN, when it was shot down by a hostile ground force. The aircraft was flying at about 40 feet of altitude and 45 knots of speed when a rocket-propelled grenade went through the tail boom, damaging the driveshaft and causing the helicopter to crash and burn. Six U.S. personnel and two Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN) personnel were killed in the incident. The lost Americans included pilots WO1 George F. Barry Jr. and CPT Eugene S. Miller, crew chief SP4 William H. Vaught III, and gunner SP4 Stephen J. Perkins; also lost were passengers MAJ Shane N. Soldato and WO1 Larrie J. Landersheim.

Little sister

Shane,

You were the only one in the family that treated me like your little sister and didn't try to "father" me or bully me or beat me. I will always love you for that.
