Last Known Activity

SP4 Lewis N. Langford was a helicopter mechanic assigned to the 282nd Assault Helicopter Company stationed at Marble Mountain Air Facility in Da Nang, Quang Nam Province, RVN. On the early morning of February 25, 1968, near the end of the Tet Offensive, the airbase was hit by rockets and mortars. SP4 Langford was fatally injured in the barrage. Those who served with him remembered Lanford as a polite and deeply religious man. He kept to himself most of the time, reading and drinking soda in his hooch.
