I remember the good times, I remember the bad.

On November 28, 1966, SP4 John H. Hoeffs was swimming with members of his unit about 10 miles north of the city of Tuy Hoa in Phy Yen Province, South Vietnam, when a large wave came in and swept several individuals out to sea.
All the individuals were able to get back to shore except for SP4 Hoeffs. A helicopter was used to search off shore and along the shoreline for him but he was not found. His remains have not been recovered.
