Thank You

Dear Sgt Michael Sorter, Thank you for your service with the 377th USAF Dispensary. Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart. Yesterday was Palm Sunday, and Passover is soon, too. Time moves quickly. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage, guidance and faithfulness, especially now. Rest in peace with the angels.

Ground Casualty

Tan Son Nhut Air Base was a Republic of Vietnam Air Force (RVNAF) facility. It was located near the city of Saigon in southern Vietnam. The United States used it as a major base during the Vietnam War, stationing Army, Air Force, Navy, and Marine units there. On June 19, 1968, a truck load of captured ammunition blew up in the munitions area at Tan Son Nhut for unknown reasons. The 2:15 PM explosion killed two and injured two others. The lost personnel were SFC BC Izard and SP4 Larry G. Massie (Massie expired the following day). The truck was destroyed in the blast. A U.S. Air Force ambulance, while enroute to the scene of the explosion, crossed a runway where a U.S. Army Beechcraft U-21A Ute utility aircraft was on takeoff. The Ute hit the ambulance, killing two medics from the 377th USAF Dispensary, SGT Wilbur L. Hallack Jr. and SGT Michael V. Sorter. Five Army personnel in the airplane were injured, one seriously requiring hospitalization. Both the aircraft and the ambulance were extensively damaged.
