Final Mission of 1LT George M. Wall

On April 22, 1970, an EC-47 aircraft, tail number 43-48402, call-sign CAP 53, out of Pleiku, with eight crewmembers on board, was hit by anti-aircraft fire (presumably 37MM anti-aircraft fire) while flying a combat mission in eastern Laos. The Navigator was wounded by shrapnel from the explosion. The Pilot turned the aircraft on an easterly heading toward friendlier territory, but control problems prevented his success. The aircraft crashed near A Loui Airfield in South Vietnam. The pilot, 1LT George M. Wall, and one radio operator, SSGT Michael R. Conner, were killed in the crash. The remaining crewmembers, although wounded, survived the crash and were rescued by helicopter. In order to assure destruction of the classified equipment on board, an EOD team policed the area and destroyed scattered components and the aircraft. Additionally, six Tactical Air sorties were flown on the crash site to destroy the aircraft and any sensitive equipment still aboard the aircraft. [Taken from 6994th.com]

Remembering An American Hero

Dear 1LT George Michael Wall, 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, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter
