PFC Clarence A. KIMM died as a result of drowning on 13 MAR 1967. It is believed that he died off of the beach at MMAF in the surf (possibly a riptide). He may have been learning to swim for the first time as it was understood that he desired to be qualified as a crew member on the huey.
I am looking for first hand or second hand information on this incident, including rescue and/or SAR operation participants. It is believed that he may have been missing for 5 days after drowning so that there would have been an SAR effort in mid-March 1967.
