600TH PHOTO SQUADRON, 7TH AF
From Pine Bluff, Arkansas
15 July 1946 - 01 July 1967
His plane had been hit by ground fire and made an emergency landing at Bien Hoa and in the process, from what I heard, ran out of fuel, made a hard landing, rolled over into a drainage ditch, and Bob drowned.
The incident is written up in one of Robert Caputo's books but I can't remember which one. I know of this because I had taken Bob down to the squadron to catch that F-100. I myself had left for Bin Thuey, in the delta, the same day and found out about his death later that day.
