 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
Sgt. Robert Matthew Worshinski was stationed at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware.  He loaded and offloaded C-130s and C-124s.  His nickname was "Moon", because no matter if it was sunny, cloudy or night time, he wore his sunglasses.  He was very out going and had a great sence of humor.

   On June 10, 1968 he arrived for duty with the 15th Aero Port Squadron at DaNang Air Base with a permanent duty assignment to Dak To.
