Last Known Activity
"On 2 February 1962, a C-123 on a training flight for Operation Ranch Hand crashed in South Vietnam, probably the result of ground fire or sabotage. Staff Sergeant Milo B. Coghill, the aircraft's flight engineer, became the first Air Force enlisted member to die in South Vietnam as a result of this crash."
