Final Mission of CW3 William H. Yount Jr.

On December 24, 1970, a U.S. Army AH-1G Cobra (tail number 68-15171) attack helicopter from A Troop, 3rd Squadron, 17th Cavalry was conducting a Nighthawk mission when it was shot down by hostile groundfire. The Nighthawk missions were nighttime combat patrols utilizing a modified UH-1M helicopter fitted with spotlights from M-551 tanks which would illuminate targets for the Cobras. During this mission in Binh Long Province, RVN, the Cobra was hit by small arms fire and crashed. Both crewmen were killed. The lost personnel were aircraft commander 1LT Jospeh C. Spence Jr. and pilot CW3 William H. Yount Jr. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and vhpa.org]
