  • Capt Raymond David Stetser USMC, Crash Incident 11 Dec 1973, flying VMO-6 OV-10

    At present, investigation has revealed that Capt Raymond Stetser was a prior enlisted MARCAD. He was age 32 date of death. He apparently did several tours in Vietnam flying 34's, 53's, and lastly OV-10's and apparently served in 4-5 squadrons so there should be many Marines in the rotary wing community who know of this man. The daughter wishes to have contact with any of her fathers MARCAD classmates or squadronmates.

    Capt Stetser's CO at the time was likely a Lt Col Robert C Finn who had assumed command two months prior to incident ( VMO-6 MCAS Futenma) The pilot in rear seat who survived ejection was a 1st Lt John S Crowell. Capt Raymond Stetser

    Likely served in HMH-461, HMH 462, HMH 463, HMM-163 (Ridge Runners), HMM 363 during several tours in Vietnam. Daughter stated he flew medivac--I would guess in 34 and/or 46
