Good Friend
Millard and I first met in USAF basic training at Lackland AFB feb 1958. We were both assigned to Seymour Johnson AFB, fire department after basic training. Feb 2nd 1962, 51 years ago, he was best man at my wedding. During the four years we were stationed together I found him to be a person of good standards and a dependable friend. I was deeply hurt upon the news of his death.

Rescue Helicopter Heroes
On 10 October 1968, an HH-43B helicopter (Call Sign Pedro 44), assigned to Phan Rang AB, Republic of Vietnam, crashed and burned while on an emergency intercept mission. During the landing of the emergency aircraft, Pedro 44 entered a left hand climbing turn as if departing the area for return to the alert pad. The helicopter, without any radio transmission, crashed and burned inflicting fatal injuries to all five aircrew members. Firefighting equipment and medical assistance, already on hand for the landing aircraft emergency, responded immediately to the scene, extinguishing the fire within 15 seconds and immediately removed the crew members from the aircraft. The primary cause of this accident was material failure which resulted in loss of aircraft control. Aircrew lost in the incident: MAJ Donald Ray Brooks (pilot) SSG Milard Luther Bledsoe (crew chief) CPT Von Miles Liebernecht (co-pilot) TSG Angel Luna (medic) TSG Emmett Somers Orr.

Lest we forget. They shall grow not old, as we that are left, grow old. Age shall not weary them, nor the years, condemn. At the going down, of the sun and in the morning, We will, remember them.
