I Still Remember

Ramey,
I often think about the many names on that graduation roster for the class of 1960 who became names on another list then became names on a wall. Tonight after dinner with my daughters and their mother we watched Good Morning Vietnam and I thought about all of those friends who’s lives ended far too soon.

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]
