Ken's name is on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, panel 32W, line 44.

While flying Command and Control for "Bulldog", commander of the 3/506 101st Airborne, Ken's aircraft took multiple small arms fire. The damage caused the aircraft to have a hydraulic failure and crash when they attempted to land at Phan Thiet.

Ken and I arrived in Vietnam about the same time and became crewchiefs at the same time. I flew as Ken's gunner up until the day before his aircraft crashed.
