Thank you Lt. for your service to this great nation and to our Corps...

THE WALL

Standing here in front of the Wall
silently reading your name
solemnly I thank you one and all
Each of you different, yet the same

The list seems forever endless
but I remember your faces
you made the supreme sacrifice, I confess
as I walk slowly with measured paces

Each one of you answered the call
willingly or not, you gave your lives
Rest easy, my Brothers - heroes all
The Nation still survives


"War drew us from our homeland

In the sunlit springtime of our youth.

Those who did not come back alive remain

 in perpetual springtime -- forever young --

And a part of them is with us always."

--- Author Unknown ---

 God Bless  You                 

 

 

Four men died when a UH-1E BuNo 154962 was shot down. The command chronology of HML-167 for July 21 1968 reads as follows: "While flying a VMO-2 aircraft near Hill 65 an HML-167 was hit by hostile fire. The aircraft was unable to maintain flight and crashed killing the entire crew along with a fourth member of the crew (LCpl Jimmy L Norsworthy who was a member of VMO-2). Reportedly the Huey's hydraulics system had been shot out, rendering the aircraft uncontrollable.
