Final Mission of SP4 Nathaniel Thomas

On January 24, 1970, a U.S. Army helicopter UH-1H (tail number 67-17559) from A Troop, 7th Squadron, 1st Cavalry Regiment, was participating in a reconnaissance in force (RIF) operation in the 7th ARVN Division Area of Operations in Dinh Tuong Province, RVN, ten miles to the north and northwest of Vinh Long. During the operation, the helicopter was entering a landing zone when a booby-trapped ammunition container exploded. The gunner on the aircraft, SP4 Nathaniel Thomas, and a passenger, U.S. Marine advisor CAPT William A. Griffis III, were killed by the blast. Two Republic of Vietnam Marines were also killed, including the executive officer of the 4th Infantry Battalion. Three U.S Army personnel were wounded, and the helicopter was completely destroyed after crashing. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and vhpa.org]

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 Nathaniel Thomas, 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
