Vietnam Airman laid to rest

An Air Commando who died when his C-123 flare ship was shot down over Ahn Khe, Vietnam, was laid to rest Friday at Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery, Texas. Retired Senior Master Sgt. Gary Thomas and several of Airman 1st Class Jerry Mack Wall’s family members greeted the flag draped casket when it arrived to San Antonio Wednesday, aboard American Airlines Flight 497. Passengers on the plane watched from their windows as the fire department honored the flight with a water cannon salute and as the Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland Honor Guard carried Wall’s remains to an awaiting hearse.

Vietnam Airman laid to rest

An Air Commando who died when his C-123 flare ship was shot down over Ahn Khe, Vietnam, was laid to rest Friday at Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery, Texas. The 310th Air Commando Squadron loadmaster, Airman 1st Class Jerry Mack Wall, and his unit of Air Commandos provided combat air patrol and airlift to soldiers, delivering ammo, food, supplies and troops. They also flew out wounded and killed in action GI’s, as well as prisoners, but one of the most harrowing jobs was the “candlestick” mission. During those missions, loadmasters and flare kickers would load, unload and drop hundreds of flares from the skies over southern Vietnam, illuminating the enemy.
