A Note from The Virtual Wall

The Marine Air Group 36 (MAG-36) Command Chronology for November 1965 contains the following entry:
"22 November 1965 - An emergency lift was made by HMM-362 to relieve the ARVN outpost at THACH TRU, south of Quang Ngai. The mission was successfully completed in very poor weather conditions which apparently caused the loss of YL-36, last seen in IFR conditions in a climbing turn at night over the sea, northeast of Quang Ngai. To date no sign of the aircraft or crew has been found, and it is assumed that it crashed at sea with the loss of all hands: 1stLt F VISCONTI, 1stLt R A MILLER, Cpl V J PIRKER and Cpl J E DOUGLAS."
"YL-36" was the side number for UH-34D Bureau Number 147180. All four crewmen were carried as Missing in Action, and promoted while in that status, until the Secretary of the Navy approved Presumptive Findings of Death for them on the dates indicated below:
