On February 14, 1968, USAF AC-47D "Spooky" gunship S/N 43-49859 departed Phan Rang Air Base on a close air support mission. The aircraft was shot down just five miles south of the air base, killing all eight of the aircrew on board:

Captain Edward Beeding Quill Jr., San Francisco, CA

Captain Thomas Joseph Margle, New Philadelphia, PA

Staff Sergeant Warren Mitchell Dixon, Catlettsburg, KY

Staff Sergeant Robert Kiyoshi Kawamura, Santa Clara, CA

Staff Sergeant Roger Gail Lee, Hinton, OK

It is assumed by this compiler that Edward Quill was promoted to the rank of Major posthumously.

Major Quill's name appears on the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial, Washington, D.C., at Panel 39E - Row 52.
