Birth: Nov. 2, 1932
Death: Nov. 27, 1968

I found the following information:

Roger Bartholomew was killed when the Huey helicopter he was co-piloting was shot down during an ARA mission near FB Tomahawk by extremely heavy small arms fire during an attack on an enemy position North of Da Nang.

Those in the helicopter were:

WO1 John W. Brinkmeyer, Pilot
LTC Roger J. Bartholomew, Co-pilot
SP5 Loren D. Martinsen, Crew Chief
SP4 Ernest L. Barber, Gunner
COL Edward B. Vogel

All were aboard a UH-1C Huey helicopter #66-00611 that was shot down over Thua Thien, Republic of Vietnam. All four crewmen were from from the 77th Artillery Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division; WO John W Brinkmeyer, LTC Roger J Bartholomew, Spec Loren D Martinsen, and Spec Ernest L Barber. Col. Vogel was a passenger.
