Final Mission of LT Ramey L. Carpenter

On March 31, 1969, a North American RA-5C (#150842) from Reconnaissance Attack Squadron Six (RVAH-6) was on a mission over Laos when it crashed about 30 miles northeast of Nakhon Phanom with the loss of both crewmen. At the time of the crash the flight was in an 80-degree starboard turn at 5,000 feet doing 420 knots when it exploded in a huge fireball and disintegrated. The cause is unknown although structural failure or fuel tank explosion is possible. The lost crewmen were CDR Danforth E. White and LT Ramey L. Carpenter. Their remains were excavated in 1997 and positively identified. [From the book U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps Aircraft Damaged or Destroyed by Douglas E. Campbell]

Remembering An American Hero

Dear LT Ramey Leo Carpenter, 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

If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vgiils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.
