From: http://ronald-lee-longanecker.webnode.cz/quang-tri-province-vietnam-8-july-1966-story-of-the-incident/ George Neville, A/3rd Rec Bn/3rd Marines remembers ....

Two Sea Knight transport helicopters landed CH-46 reconnaissance team southwest of Cam Lo. The team hit the enemy hard contact and then was successfully retrieved. The same team was discontinued about two hours later. During this withdrawal was one CH-46 helicopter - piloted by 1st Lt.. Bert L. Nale and 1st Lt.. David W.Mc Cleerym (HMM-164) shot down. The helicopter began to burn, yet all on board were able to leave the machine. Except Recon LCPL Ronald Lee Longanecker that found in the flames of his death.
