Hello, Thomas H. AMOS, I'm a 8th grade student doing a research project on the Vietnam War and the people that lost their lives in it. I just wanted to say thank you for your service and I hope your happy up in heaven. My grandfather was in the Air force too, he was also a pilot, he loved serving for our country, hopefully just like you did. May you rest in peace.

Final Mission of CAPT Thomas H. Amos

On April 20, 1972, pilot CAPT Thomas H. Amos and navigator CAPT Mason I. Burnham were the crew of a U.S. Air Force McDonnell-Douglas F-4D Phantom II (#65-0602), call sign Loggy 02, from the 35th Tactical Fighter Squadron on a night mission in the vicinity of the South Vietnam-Laos border. They were the number two aircraft in a flight of three F-4D’s from Da Nang Airfield escorting an AC-130 gunship, call sign Spectre 09, over South Vietnam. During the mission, there was no moon, the weather was clear, and the stars provided the only illumination. The crews completed a 30-minute escort, refueled, then rejoined the gunship. CAPT Amos requested Spectre 09 to select a target for him to expend his ordinance. Spectre 09 located a target (a truck), briefed Amos, and proceeded to mark the target with 40mm gunfire. At 1:27 AM, the crew of Spectre 09 heard Amos report he was lining up on the target. Spectre 09 lost communication with the Phantom crew, and shortly thereafter observed ordinance from the jet explode a mile from the target followed by a large fireball on the ground. Attempts were made to regain radio contact with the Loggy 02 without success. No parachutes were seen, nor emergency signals heard. Aircrews remained in the area through the night conducting a search which produced negative results. Search efforts were suspended April 23, 1972. Because the area was held by hostile forces, no ground search was conducted. Amos was promoted to Major during the time he was missing. On April 24, 1993, a recovery team surveyed the crash site which was determined to be approximately 225 yards inside of Laos. DNA from remains recovered at the site was matched to both of the crew members. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and vietnam.ttu.edu]
