A Note from The Virtual WallAccording to the casualty database, Captain Johnnie P. Sawyer died in a non-combat loss on 10 June 1966. The 219th Aviation Company History for the period 25 March 1965 to 31 December 1966 does not address the circumstances of his loss, but the third page of the document is blank except for the words
The 219th flew the O-1D light observation aircraft. The Virtual Wall has not been able to determine the aircraft side number or the location of the crash.
A second soldier, PFC Peter D. Geoghegan (181st MI Detachment, 101st Abn Div) of Mineola, New York, was killed under identical circumstances on 10 June. Although The Virtual Wall cannot document it as fact, it seems likely that PFC Geoghegan was flying as Captain Sawyer's observer.
