Harvey Drew Scofield
Airman
VF-11, CVW-17, USS FORRESTAL
United States Navy
18 August 1947 - 29 July 1967
Miami, Florida
Panel 24E Line 042
USS FORRESTAL arrived on Yankee Station in the Gulf of Tonkin on 25 July 1967 and immediately began combat operations. The first four days were routine; the fifth day, 29 July, was not.
At 10:52 AM a 5-inch Zuni rocket accidentally fired across the crowded flight deck, impacting an armed A-4 Skyhawk. The resulting explosions and fires raged for 13 hours and more, killing 135 crewmen with hundreds more injured.

Some of Fighter Squadron 11's berthing spaces were located immediately below the area of the flight deck first involved, and many off-duty men from VF-11 died in these compartments. VF-11 lost a total of 48 men.
