From Garry D. Marsh:
Sergeant Harry Wilson is my "Adopted" MIA.
A Note from The Virtual WallOn 04 June 1970 HMM-262 was tasked with extracting a MACV-SOG recon team operating in Laos. The extract team consisted of the pick-up aircraft, CH-46A BuNo 153403, two H-53s, and four Cobra gunships. According to the HMM-262 Command Chronology, the CH-46 was hit by automatic weapons fire and crashed in the pick-up zone. Sergeant Wilson was fatally injured, the pilot received severe injuries, and the other crewmen survived with moderate injury.
One MACV-SOG soldier, 1LT Mark H. Rivest of Springfield, Massachussetts, is known to have been killed in action in Laos on 04 June while leading a reaction platoon. The Virtual Wall cannot determine if 1LT Rivest was associated with the recon team being extracted.
