THOMAS EUGENE FIKE
 

Roy  Spencer
Vietnam Veteran-Air Force Pilot
Lest We Forget Our Heroes Sacrifice
Sgt. Tim Fike was KIA in December 71. It was his last mission before rotating home (it was to be a milk run out of Saigon and back). His crew was shot down as they were returning to Saigon. The pilot thought that they had seen a rocket launcher set up in a rice paddy. They went in low level to check it out (flying a UH-1N slick), and they received heavy ground fire. Sgt Tim Fike, a door gunner was killed, the other door gunner was seriously wounded and at least one other crew member. He was one of the last members of the Green Hornet Squadron killed in Vietnam.

I served, with him, in Ban Me Thout
10107, central, #102, kansas city, mo., 64114,
I was at Bam Me Thout, with Fike, (that's what I, called him) from Dec., 1970, to Dec., 1971. What I remember about him, was his zest, for life. I can't, remember, where we, were at, but it was, another, army location. Could have been Camp Holloway, or Monkey Mountain? The night, we got there we hoisted, a few with the army, chopper guys. That is the first time, I really got to know, Fike. What a hangover, the next day. He was killed three days, before I left, Vietnam. That kinda took, the thrill out, of going home, for me. When my sons, were, in high school, the traveling, Memorial wall, was set up, at their school, for a couple, of days. I showed them, his name and after all those years, I still got a tear, in my eye.

My Friend
You know, after all, these years, I still remember, the last time, I saw Fike. We were standing, beside the helicopter, at Ban Me Thout (B50, East) and he was zipping up, his flight suit. I will never forget you, my friend-especially on days, like today.
