Your friends dd not forget you

I happened to buy an obscure record album by a band called Coldwater Army. It's a pretty obscure set, but carries a dedication to their friend - "Dedicated to David M. Allen - Killed in Vietnam, October 10, 1970."

Just thought someone might like to know.

The next time I visit the wall, I will pay my respects to this American hero.

Final Mission of WO1 David M. Allen

The aircraft, an AH-1G, departed Quang Tri airfield in a flight of three helicopters (OH-6A, AH-1G, and UH-1H). Approximately fifteen minutes into the flight, the OH-6A pilot radioed that he observed a unit of friendly armored personnel carriers. The AH-1G then initiated a steep dive toward the personnel carriers to attempt a low level pass. Recovery from the dive was initiated. However, the aircraft struck the ground. After initial impact, the tail boom, main rotor and transmission, and engine separated from the pilot compartment. The pilot compartment then bounced several times and rolled end-over-end, finally coming to rest in a ravine. The co-pilot, WO1 David M. Allen, suffered fatal injuries in the crash.
