I remember the morning of the crash.  Everyone was instantly awake and I heard every M16 bolt go forward at the same time.  By the time we got the real word on what happened it was getting pretty light so they sent us out to the foxholes to wait it out.

I was in a foxhole with Eric Linzmeyer and we were listening to the sounds of cooking ammo flying somewhere overhead. 

As far as the burned private, I have no idea.  I don't even remember hearing about it.

Good luck!

Yeah, I spelled it right...also, Bill Keller is on this site..he was there, he might remember. FYI...I still have a coffee can full of flechettes from the wreckage of that crash.

Hey, Tim...those memories are getting pretty foggy. I remember the crash...crew was brought to our tent cuz we were closest. Pretty sure Ken Haynie was one of the pilots. Don't recall the other. As far as an individual who pulled them out, I have no idea. Ken is on Facebook...let me get back to you with the correct spelling of his last name. Give me 10 minutes.

I was in that area quite often, my dad had a friend that lived on the other corner beside Fat Jacks. My wife lived across the street beside Schoonover Park when she was a kid. Small world!

 I lived on W Vine, near the refinery. The flares were my nightlights!

Yep, I was the PT officer for Savage troop.  CPT Jay Smith allowed me to attend the Master Fitness Trainer Course and I used the troop as my test subjects.   :-)

9th Colonel of the Regiment David R. Clendenin 29 Oct 1888 – 2 Apr 1891



This was the third design of the 2d Cavalry DUI, worn from 1924-1931. The sharp points on the ends of the bottom scroll again called for a redesign.
