Final Mission of HM2 Michael H. Cavanagh
On June 2, 1969, a U.S. Marine Corps helicopter CH-46D (tail number 153970) from Marine Medium Medium Helicopter Squadron 161 (HMM 161) was on a medical evacuation mission east of Khe Sanh when the aircraft received enemy fire, causing it to crash and burn. Two crew members, crew chief CPL Donald W. Akins and medic HM2 Michael H. Cavanagh, and two passengers, CPL Michael Montijo and PFC Savas E. Trevino, suffered fatal injuries in the crash. The aircraft commander, George Kontrabecki, survived and was rescued. [Taken from vhpa.org]

Remembering An American Hero

Dear HM2 Michael Howard Cavanagh, 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
