 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
A1C Stevens served with Det. 13, 600th Photographic Squadron at Nha Trang.  On 9 October 1968, Airman Stevens, an aerial photographer, was covering a psychological warfare speaker mission aboard an O-2B aircraft from Nha Trang Air Base when radio contact was lost. A search party later found the wreckage and recovered his body. Investigation of the wreckage showed cause of crash due to enemy fire.

The pilot of the O-2 was very likely Lt. Charles H. Richardson  of the 9th SOS also stationed at Nha Trang.

He left a young wife.
