Final Mission of CAPT David B. Tucker

CAPT David B. Tucker was an Airborne-qualified Infantry Unit Commander. CAPT Tucker commanded E Company, 20th Infantry, a long-range reconnaissance patrol (LRRP) company attached to the 101st Airborne Division. On October 1, 1967, Tucker was visiting several units to obtain volunteer LRRP’s. While he was returning to his base at An Khe, the helicopter he was traveling in was hit by enemy .51 caliber heavy machine gun fire. Tucker was fatally wounded in the attack. After taking evasive action to avoid the enemy fire, the aircraft returned to normal flight and did not crash. It safely returned to base. Tucker was posthumously promoted to major.
