William Victor Brindle
Birth: Sep. 18, 1948
Indiana, USA
Death: Jul. 29, 1967, Vietnam

18 years, 10 months, 11 days

VF-74, USS FORRESTAL (CVA-59), TF 77, 7TH FLEET
United States Navy

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.
