Remembering An American Hero

Dear Major William G Coats, 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

Crash Information on U.S. Army helicopter OH-23G tail number 62-03793

The aircraft apparently crashed in a level attitude. It burned on impact. The incident was caused by a failure of the rotor control blade spar tube due to fatigue. Tragically, the accident claimed the lives of pilot WO1 James R. Simpson and observer MAJ William G. Coats. A passenger survived. [Taken from vhpa.org]
