Final Mission of SSG Carl J. Wanner

Final Mission of SSG Carl J. Wanner
On May 18, 1969, a United States Air Force Fairchild C-123K Provider from the 310th Special Operations Squadron was conducting an airlift mission of artillery ammunition when it was hit by 12.7 mm ground fire. With the wing burning, the crew headed for nearby Bien Hoa Air Base for an emergency landing. About 6 miles out, while crewmen valiantly attempted to jettison some of the 10,000 pounds of Class A explosives, time ran out and the wing folded, sending the Provider into the ground. Six airmen were lost in the crash. They included aircraft commander 1LT Neil W. Hayden, co-pilot 1LT Douglas M. Evans, flight engineers MSG Duane L. Hartenhoff and TSG Kermit B. Roberts, and loadmasters SGT Milton J. Bush and SSG Carl J. Wanner. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org, aviation-safety.net, and information provided by Dennis L. Allen (March 2000) at vvmf.org]

Cecilia and Tom

Carl, I remember you so many times, I say a prayer for you every time we go into the VFW. You should be coming down to Florida in the Winter to spend time away from the snow. I get so angry when I think of all the beautiful young men going to waste over there...We supported you and your pals one hundred percent.
Miss you and Madeline
