Final Mission of LTC Harlow G. Clark Jr.

On March 7, 1966, an OH-13S (#63-09093) observation helicopter from Headquarters & Headquarters Company (HHC), 1st Brigade, 1st Cavalry Division, was involved in an accident at the Division’s base camp at Camp Radcliff near An Khe in Binh Dinh Province, RVN. Reportedly, the pilot, LTC Harlow G. Clark Jr., was conducting an aerial tour of Radcliff with the new Brigade commander. Clark had set the OH-13S down in a roughly cleared area on the perimeter north of Hon Cong Mountain. While attempting takeoff, the right skid of the helicopter caught under a tree root causing the aircraft to roll over. The main rotor blade came through the Plexiglas cockpit bubble, striking Clark in the head, killing him instantly. His passenger survived with injuries. Image: Clark's OH-13S following the mishap.

LTC HARLOW CLARK was a 3 War Veteran

Upon compiling the records of the 129thIR 37thID I spoke with the son of a LTC of the regiment (ret Major). One of his Sergeants was Harlow Clark. They had a special bond both being from Georgia. The served together through all the campaigns in Bougainville and the Philippines. Sgt Clark was wounded Feb 1945 and given a battlefield promotion- finishing the war a Lieutenant. He then served in Korea- wounded in Sept ‘52. And finally serving through to Vietnam as LTC. He was known as a warm man, a hell of a soldier, and a was deeply grieved by comrades spanning into 3 decades. I have the history of the incredible campaigns and battles he served in during WW2. That alone is epic. It sure is special getting to know the man more through these wonderful remembrances and tributes. His LTC in WW2 loved him.
