Sergeant John C. Tingley pulled CWO William Hartwell out of a burning helicopter, then was killed while getting into an evac helicopter. Billy Hartwell was a boyhood friend of my wife.
Thank you, and God bless you. You will never be forgotten.
From Paul Narson
A Note from The Virtual WallOn 10 Jan 1968 a UH-1B (tail number 64-14011) from the 128th Assault Helicopter Company went down about 14 kilometers northeast of Trang Bang after being hit by small arms fire. The gunner, SP4 Stephen M. Childs, was able to get the other crewmen out of the wreckage and call for assistance using an emergency radio. The three survivors (WO Hartwell had been killed in the incident) were picked up by another helo, but that aircraft too was hit on lift-off, killing 64-14011's crew chief. The two dead were CWO William R. Hartwell and SGT John C. Tingley.
