I did not know Ray personally but my sister did. She went to school with him and when he was around, he was always a very nice guy. He is one of our heroes who will not be forgotten.

From one who remembers.

Ray and I were best friends in High School. He was the kind of friend that stuck by you and he stuck by me. I know he was a good soldier because he was a good man.

Thank you God for my friend!

Although I did not know Sergeant Davis personally, I grew up in the community that he was from. It makes me proud to know that a man from my community was willing to give his life for our nation.

A Note from The Virtual Wall

Four men of C Troop, 1st Squadron, 9th Cavalry, died in the crash of their UH-1B (tail number 62-02063):
  • CW2 Ernest Doom Burns, pilot
  • MAJ Thomas Moody Felton, pilot
  • SGT Ray Gene Davis, crew chief
  • PFC Dewey Renee Butler, gunner
The UH-1B was on a night combat support mission in company with an OH-6A LOACH when the two aircraft collided. Both went down, killing all four on the UH-1B. The three crewmen on OH-6A 67-16601 were seriously injured but were recovered and survived.

A recovery team visited the UH-1B crash site and visually identified all four bodies. The remains were brought back to camp, but Butler's body disappeared before an official positive identification could be made. Animal tracks were found leading away from the area and it was belived that his remains had been carried away. His body was not recovered.
