Death:  Jan. 3, 1971, South Vietnam

Spc6 Carl Anthony Palen of Dubuque, Iowa served in the United States Army. At about 0900 03 Jan 1971 a U-6A BEAVER (serial #52-25884) departed Qui Nhon on an administrative support flight to Ban Me Thuot, South Vietnam, carrying crewmen from the 61st AHC to collect replacement helicopters for the company. The helicopter crewmen would then fly the helicopters back to Qui Nhon. At 1120 hours, with the U-6 about 14 miles southeast of Phu Cat, radio and radar contact with the plane was lost. Because the pilot, Captain F. A. Rhodes, had announced plans to remain overnight at Ban Me Thuot, no immediate search was made. When search efforts were begun on 5 January, no trace of the aircraft or its seven occupants could be found. Formal search efforts ended on 9 January 1971. He is honored…

United States Travel: Minnesota

NJ to the World

In the past, I’ve only really thought of Minnesota in terms of unfair generalities. For example, „It’s too cold there.“ „It’s basically Canada.“ „I don’t like their accents, or Michele Bachmann for that matter.“ „The Vikings suck.“ (Just kidding, I don’t mind the Vikings). My trip to Minnesota proved most of these things to be true. However, that doesn’t mean I don’t like Minnesota. In fact, I’m actually growing incredibly fond of this state. There’s something about Minnesota’s image of rugged wilderness– of forests and lakes and moose and geese– that appeals to me. I happen to love the outdoors, and Minnesota (especially the northern portion of the state) seems to be an outdoors-man’s paradise. And I never thought I’d be venturing this far west so soon.
