Final Mission of A1C David M. Chaney

On April 16, 1967, a U.S. Air Force C-130B Hercules transport plane (#58-0722) from the 29th Troop Carrier Squadron, 463d Troop Carrier Wing, crashed on go-around at Bao Loc, Lam Dong Province, RVN. The Hercules transport plane landed at the airstrip at but failed to decelerate as expected. The captain decided to go around and added power. The airplane struck a small hill just beyond the end of the runway. It went into a ravine, setting off the cargo of ammunition. Three of the six crewmen perished in crash: flight engineer SSGT David C. Glover, and loadmasters SSGT Donald L. Kannel and A1C David M. Chaney.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear A1C David Michael Chaney, 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, Sir

Curt Carter

NATIVE AMERICAN PRAYER

It is said a man hasn't died as long as he is remembered. This prayer is a way for families, friends and fellow veterans to remember our fallen brothers and sisters. Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight, I am the stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die
