  • 1st Lt Richard C Theriault

    I find this name on the list of deceased after returning to CONUS. Did he serve with HMMT-301 at Santa Ana some time between 1966 and 1968?

    I'm trying to connect a name and face with a heroic avionics officer who stopped a suicide attempt in hangar one or two, probably in 1967. It was a suspenseful hour or so while this played out in the rafters of the old hangar.

    Lowell Johnson, USMC 1964 - 1968

    From Cris Theriault (son of RC Theriault)

    My father was an Asst. Airfield Operations Captain at the Santa Ana Marine base around that period of time(1966-67). We eventually moved to Thailand with Air America. I would appreciate any details concerning this event. Please feel free to contact me at
