Last Known Activity
ENS Bruce M. Patterson and AE2 Charles D. Hardie were part of the crew of a U.S. Navy KA3H. On 27 July 1967, their aircraft was airborne about 200 miles due east from the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) when it encountered difficulties requiring the three crewmen to parachute from the crippled aircraft. The crew safely parachuted from the plane, but only the pilot was rescued. Patterson and Hardie were never found. It was assumed they drowned. Both were classified Killed, Body Not Recovered.
