MAG-36 Command Chronology - October 1965

11 October 1965 - Eleven HMM-364 aircraft departed Ky Ha for an ARVN strike/troop lift out of Quang Ngai. The mission was aborted due to weather. As the flight was returning to Ky Ha, the lead aircraft was hit by ground fire at the southern extremity of the TAOR, in the vicinity of BS610990. One round struck and killed SSgt Womack, who was riding as Loadmaster in the troop compartment. This was the first casualty sustained by the squadron since deployment overseas on 10 August 1965.
