John William Brinkmeyer
Warrant Officer
Member of HHB, 4th Battalion, 77th Artillary Regiment, 101 Airborne Division, U.S. Army

I found the following information:

John Brinkmeyer was killed when the Huey helicopter he was 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

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. Four crewmen 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.
