Uncle teddy

You were dads best friend and it breaks my heart that I never got to meet you.
Growing up and still to this day dad talks about you often. I like to think that he lives his life for the both of you, and carries a piece of you with him every where he goes.
thank you for being our Guardian angel.

Final Mission of PFC Theodore A. Winowitch

On December 30, 1964, a U.S. Army helicopter UH-1B (tail number 63-08654) from the 68th Aviation Company (Armed Helicopter) was shot down at Binh Gia with the loss of all crew members aboard. After being hit by ground fire, witnesses watched as they began to trail smoke, then flames from a fuel cell fire. Then, as the tail boom drooped and separated from the aircraft, the nose dropped and the rotor disc then tilted back, an apparent attempt by the pilot to keep the nose from dropping. The pilot was unable to overcome the nose tucking condition caused by the tail boom loss, and they crashed, not quite fully inverted, into the rubber trees, just off the S.E. corner of the village (of Binh Gia). The lost crew members included aircraft commander WO1 Roy G. Azbill, pilot WO1 Stephen E. Morgan, crew chief SGT Franklin D. Porter, and gunner PFC Theodore A. Winowitch. An unnamed passenger also perished in the crash. Note: John W. Vandeven Jr. was the regular crew chief for this aircraft but did not fly that day. [Taken from vhpa.org and 118ahc.org]
