WO TERRY LYNN HENRY

 
23 Jul 2004

Terry was a classmate in Flight School at Fort Wolters, Texas, in class 69-35. I remember the weekends that we would be restricted to base because of too many demerits, we always had a good time even though we couldn't go anywhere. At Fort Rucker Terry had a Camero that was white with orange racing strips he liked to speed around the base with. His sacrifice will always be remembered. Rest in peace Terry.

Warrant Officer Terry L Henry was killed while piloting his aircraft on a combat operation when his aircraft was fired upon by a hostile ground force, crashed, and burned in a rice paddy about 5 miles southwest of the city of Phy Vinh, Mekong Delta, Vinh Binh Province. He was piloting a "Huey" UH-1C, Tail Number 66-15148.
