 Additional Information
Last Known Activity

Prior to her enlistment in the Army in May 1967, she had graduated from D'Youville College Scool of Nursing at Buffalo, New York, in 1961. Then, she had worked at Madison Hospital in upstate New York over the next six years then moved to River Vale, New Jersey. 

In Vietnam, Captain Eleanor Alexander was stationed at the 85th evacuation in Qui Nhon. She and a group of medical personnel had been sent to a hospital in Pleiku to assist during a military push.

Description: A C-7 Caribou crashed during a routine air transport flight in South Vietnam. As the aircraft approached Qui Nhon the pilot was advised that the weather at the airfield had fallen below safety minimal. He replied that he would proceed to Nha Trang where the weather was better but the aircraft hit a mountain at 1,850 feet about five miles south of Qui Nhon. The weather at the time consisted of low cloud and rain that reduced visibility to about two miles. The four crew and 22 passengers, including two US civilians, were killed in the accident.
