A Note from The Virtual WallLance Corporal Gary Teeter was one of 45 men - 5 crewmen and 40 passengers - who died when a CH-53A (BuNo 153710) of HMM-463, off course and in fog, slammed into the side of a mountain near Hue (Thua Thien Province). The bodies were not recovered until three weeks later when a reinforced platoon from Alpha 1/3 Marines was able to reach the wreckage on 28 Jan 1968.
