I never knew your name

We never met but I have known you now for 49 years. I only recently leaned your name. I was there at lz betty the night you and 3 other men died. I watched the lights of your chopper as you approached the pol fueling area then suddenly dropped from the sky. I ran as fast as I could to try to help but it was too late. A couple of men tried to crawl close but it was too hot. I will always remember that night. We were all so young. Rest in peace. A Vietnam Brother.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear WO Albert C Brose, 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, Sir

Curt Carter

Crash Information on U.S. Army helicopter UH-1D tail number 62-12358

Crew included WO1 John J. Roberts (KIA), WO1 Albert C. Brose (KIA), SP5 Hugh L. Hurston (KIA), and SGT Jearl E. Rimmer (KIA). Tail rotor failed on short final to Pol in Phan Thiet after bringing fire base commanders back from task force meeting. On the landing approach, the tail rotor separated from the aircraft causing the aircraft to enter a violent spin. The nose started pitching up and down and while the aircraft continued to spin. It contacted the ground in a nose low attitude and on its left side. The aircraft caught fire on impact. All crew members perished in the crash. Later analysis revealed material failure in the tail rotor hub assembly. [Taken from vhpa.org]
