Final Mission of WO1 Walter A. Carpenter

On March 8, 1969, a U.S. Army helicopter OH-6A (tail number 66-07823) from B Troop, 7th Squadron, 17th Cavalry Regiment, operating in Binh Thuan Province (II Corps) was working a ridge line due west of Phan Thiet, when the aircraft was hit by hostile enemy small arms fire (AK-47). Rounds hit the fuselage causing the helicopter to crash. Both the pilot, WO1 Walter A. Carpenter, and the observer, SGT David J. Phillips, suffered fatal injuries in the crash. [Taken from vhpa.org]

With respect, Sir
