Note from The Virtual WallOn 29 May 1972, two men of H Troop, 17th Cavalry were lost when their OH-6A LOACH (hull number 66-17771) was shot down:
On 30 June 30, 1972, an ARVN platoon and US personnel were inserted into the area. A 100 meter area was searched around the crash site. Spradlin's remains were recovered as was a flight helmet belonging to SGT Morrow. The crash site area was later struck by a B-52 ARC LIGHT mission. Although it has been investigated in recent years, the crash site has failed to produce any evidence of SGT Morrow's fate.
Some sites, for example the biography page on the POW Network, give SGT Morrow's unit as "H Troop, 17th Armored Cavalry Squadron". The 17th Armored Cavalry Squadron was an ARVN unit. Elements of the U.S. 17th Cavalry Regiment served in Vietnam at both the Squadron and separate Troop levels. H Troop, 17th Cavalry, actually served in Vietnam twice, first as the 198th Infantry Brigade's ground recon unit (10/1967-10/1971) and later was reactivated as an Air Cavalry troop with the 17th Aviation Group (04/72-02/73). SGT Morrow was assigned to H Troop (Air Cavalry), 17th Cavalry Regiment.
