You Are Remembered!
Arthur Allision, was a maintenance mechanic assigned, to the 196th, Avn., Co., 1st, Avn., Bde., at Lane, Army Heliport, a CH-47, unit, 10, miles west, of the port city of Qui Nhon. On 7/16/69, CH-47A, #66-19001, nickname "Balls One," was released from maintenance, following a scheduled 100, hr., PE., exam. Art flew, on the test flight, as he had worked on the ship. As the ship, was returning to the runway, it suddenly nosed upward. Some men say it did a 360¦ loop. Others say, it stalled and then nosed down. It exploded, on impact, one-quarter mile, short, of the runway killing the crew of seven. Cause of the crash, was undetermined. Events within the unit, prior to the crash suggested, maintenance, malfunction. Most men, including myself, agreed. Some thought, it had been shot down. I was a door gunner/armorer, with the 196th. I didn't know Art well, but the Maintenance Platoon, all spoke very highly of him, as well, as fellow mechanic, Johnny Kidd. The loss of the crew, was devastating, for the unit, and we miss them all. A memorial service, was held on 8/3/69, at the post chapel for the crew: E Singleton, D Hurt, R Hoff, J Kidd, K Willis, J Price. Rest, in Peace Art. You, are not forgotten.

Remembering an American Hero

Dear SP4 Arthur Richard Allison, sir,

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for the ultimate sacrifice that you 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. And please know that men and women like you have stepped forward to defend our country yet again, showing the same love for country and their fellow Americans that you did- you would be proud.

With respect, and the best salute that a civilian can muster for you.

Curt Carter
