We Will Remember

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear Major William Francis Callinan, 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, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter

Crash Information on U.S. Army helicopter UH-1D tail number 65-09903

Crew members included MAJ William F. Callinan (KIA) and CAPT Milton F. Smith (KIA). The pilots were assigned to S-4, 52nd CAB and borrowed this helicopter from the 170 AHC. Attempting to land by ground guide with a flashlight, the aircaft struck higher terrain 100 yards short of intended touchdown point. The helicopter rolled inverted but came to rest up right. The crew had made their approach low and fast and failed to use either landing or searchlights. [Taken from vhpa.org]
