My brother, Reed

Reed was almost exactly 10 years older than I am. My name is Kirsten. Even as a kid, Reed was fascinated with planes and built a lot of them! When we lost his, i was 21. Our parents traveled with his widow, Barb, to Colorado Springs. I stayed in Raleigh with his 2 beautiful kids, Allison and Reed. I was reading and they were playing on the floor in front of me. They said, "They said our dad is dead. What do you think?" I couldn't say anything other than, "Well, I think we have to believe them." YIKES! I was 21. I sure hope I said the right thing. I love my brother.

Final Mission of CAPT Grant R. Waugh

On August 10, 1970, a United States Air Force Fairchild C-123K Provider from the 310th Tactical Airlift Squadron crashed into the South China Sea while on a ferry flight from Phan Rang Air Base to Cam Ranh Air Base. Reportedly, while on approach to Cam Ranh Bay, an engine failed. The crew lost control of the airplane and crashed into the sea a couple of miles from the airfield. Three of the four crew on board were killed. The lost personnel included pilot CAPT Grant R. Waugh, co-pilot 1LT Dwaine E. Mattox, and flight engineer TSGT Bernard F. Morrill. Grant was posthumously promoted to Major, and Mattox was posthumously promoted to Captain. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org, aviation-safety.net, and baaa-acro.com]

449th Bombardmet Wing

I remember then-Capt Waugh from the days he was assigned to the 449th Bombardment Wing at Kincheloe AFB in the late 60’s. I was an enlisted man (E-4) with the responsibility of maintaining the personnel records of the officers assigned to the wing, which could sometimes be a very trying task, particularly when scheduling the official photographs or records reviews. Major Waugh was always cooperative and treated me as an equal, understanding, I think, that I was only trying to do my job the same as he was as an A/C. It made a very lasting impression on me.

A belated condolence to his family and to the country in the loss of Major Waugh. In him, his family, the country, the USAF, and the academy can take a lot of pride. Major Waugh is the epitome of an “officer and a gentleman”. I'm sure he has positively affected many lives.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear Major Grant Reed Waugh, 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
