A LITTLE HISTORY ABOUT VMFA 333 DURING THAT DEPLOYMENT.
Major Lasseter and his Radar Intercept Officer (RIO) Captain John "Lil" Cummings are the only all USMC aircrew to shoot down a North Vietnam MIG during the Viet Nam War. On September 11, 1972, while piloting his F-4J of Marine Fighter Attack Squadron VMFA-333 off the deck of the USS America CVA-66 he and his RIO lead a four ship MIGCAP mission north east of Hanoi and successfully shot down a MIG-21 and damaged a second MIG. On egress their F-4J was hit by a Surface to Air Missile forcing the crew to eject feet wet out to sea and were successfully rescued.
