From a cousin,
A Note from The Virtual WallCaptain Turley was flying F-100D tail number 56-3448 as one of four aircraft targeted against a VC supply area about 25 miles northwest of Vung Tau. His aircraft was hit by enemy fire just as he released his weapons; it caught fire and went in a few miles distant from the target.
