Salute to a fellow Bostonian warrior

I am proud to share the same Bostonian & Gaelic ancestral roots, military oath of office and Alma Mater as MGEN Casey who is addition to West Point is also considered to be part of the Harvard Class of 1945 where he was educated before transferring to West Point. I have posted his entry on the Harvard Hall of Heroes in the Post World War II file on the website of the Advocates for Harvard ROTC. MGEN Casey is also currently included on the Vietnam plaque on the left wall of Memorial Church in the Harvard Yard for those Harvard alumni who made the supreme sacrifice for our country. When this plaque was unveiled, I had the pleasure of introducing and meeting his son Gen George Casey Jr. USA (Ret.) as the keynote speaker for this solemn and noble event in Mem Church in the Harvard yard Rest in peace and God bless the Casey family.

Thank you, Brave Soldier

MG George Casey, thank you for your service and your sacrifice for our country. 49 years later, the words thank you seem so inadequate for the sacrifice you made to ensure our freedoms. May your sacrifice and the sacrifices of your Vietnam brothers and sisters in arms always be remembered. Rest In Peace, Brave Soldier. Hooaah!

Final Mission of MGN George W. Casey

On July 7, 1970, a U.S. Army helicopter UH-1H (tail number 69-15138) from the 11th Aviation Company (General Support), 1st Cavalry Division, was on an administrative flight when it crashed in bad weather in the mountains approximately 25 miles northwest of Bao Loc in Tuyen Duc Province, RVN. Seven U.S. personnel were killed in the incident. They included aircraft commander 1LT William F. Michel, pilot MGN George W. Casey, crew chief SGT Ronald F. Fuller, and gunner SGT William L. Christenson; also lost were passengers MAJ John A. Hottell III, SGM Kenneth W. Cooper, and SGT Vernon K. Smolik Jr. The helicopter was in a flight of two aircraft headed to Cam Ranh Air Base. MGN Casey, flight-qualified and at the controls of 138, intended to visit wounded members of his command convalescing at a medical facility there. After reporting their position 25 miles southwest of Dalat at 9:30 AM, the two helicopters turned through a hole in the clouds from an altitude of approximately 6500 feet. The chase ship, Aircraft 502, saw the ground at about 3500 feet as both helicopters continued descending. The descent was made into a valley with steep ridge lines and a river at the bottom. Aircraft 502 lost visual contact with Aircraft 138, then regained visual contact, then lost it again. Both aircraft went IFR (Instrument Flight Rules) after entering clouds. Aircraft 138 radioed 502 that he was IFR and doing a 180 degree turn and recommended that 502 do the same. This was the last known contact made with Aircraft 138. Aircraft 502 began climbing in order to return to VFR (Visual Flight Rules). Aircraft 502 broke out at 7000 feet, and running low on fuel proceeded the approximately 15 to 20 minutes to Dalat. The lost Aircraft 138 was located two days later on a hillside near the Cambodian border approximately 25 miles northwest of Bao Loc. The crew compartment had been demolished on impact and destroyed in the post-crash fire. Bad weather delayed the recovery of the remains for four days until which time they were recovered and positively identified.
