Corporal Cameron was killed in the crash of a U.S. Air Force B-29 Superfortress. He was the tailgunner. The bomber was returning to Randolph Air Force Base on a 7-hour training mission when it experienced an instrument panel failure in heavy cloud cover. The crew of eleven was ordered to bail out but five members of the crew did not escape before it struck ground 10 miles southwest of Seguin, Texas.
