Final Mission of SP4 Larry G. Yeager

On July 11, 1970, a U.S. Army helicopter UH-1C (tail number 65-09563) from the 176th Assault Helicopter Company was attempting a takeoff from Tien Phuoc Special Forces Camp in Quang Tin Province, RVN, when the aircraft lost power and crashed into trees outside the perimeter of the camp, approximately 200 meters off the northwest end of the runway. The aircraft commander and crew chief were able to free themselves from the crashed aircraft as it began to burn. Freshly refilled and carrying 1100 lbs. of fuel, the helicopter became engulfed in flames. The trapped pilot, WO1 James M. Dunnavant Jr. was extracted by Special Forces personnel who raced to the scene. The gunner, SP4 Larry G. Yeager, could not be saved and perished inside the raging inferno. Dunnavant was hospitalized in critical condition; he expired one week later. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and vhpa.org
