This history is also dedicated to
COLONEL JACK T. DEMPSEY
26 March 1967 while going into an LZ to give aid to wounded aviators pinned
down by the enemy, Colonel Dempsey's aircraft was shot down and he was
killed by hostile fire.
Colonel Dempsey's life was not lost in vain. His act of courage and
heroism, which Colonel Dempsey displayed numerous times, only exemplifies
the never ending desire the American soldier has
for peace and freedom for all.
