Kenneth Richard Clough
2.26.47 – 1.7.69

Kenneth Richard Clough – 21, looked forward to a bright future, probably as an aeronautical engineer or professional pilot. He was engaged to be married as soon as his Army service was finished. WO Clough died in Vietnam, Tuesday after the helicopter he was flying was shot down in combat. He had recently been transferred to the 336th Attack Helicopter Squadron at Soc Trang, after flying rescue and troop carrying missions since his arrival in Vietnam last October. “We had a letter from Kenneth yesterday telling us that he had been chosen as one of the really good helicopter pilots and transferred to a gunship,” his mother said. Young Clough was the son of Dr. Richard Clough, professor of civil engineering at the University of New Mexico and former dean of the UNM School of Engineering. “Kenneth was a good mechanic, and would have continued his studies in aeronautical engineering, I believe,” Dr. Clough said. “He liked to swim, too, and had won some medals in YMCA contests.” WO Clough was engaged to Miss Jeanne Sei of Albuquerque. They had hoped to be married sometime this fall. Survivors include his parents, Dr. and Mrs. Richard Clough of 1025 Pueblo Solano NW; a sister, Janet Louise, at home; and his grandmother, Mrs. Edna Lamb of Albuquerque. Funeral arrangements will be announced by Strong-Thorne Mortuary. Albuquerque Journal, Thursday, January 9, 1969, page A-1.
