Fallen NH National Guardsman honored

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) -- The New Hampshire National Guard is honoring one of its own killed during a search-and-rescue mission in 1971.

That September, Frederick Bartlett, a 37-year-old father of four living in Manchester, died while attempting to help the survivors of a plane crash on Smart's Mountain near Lebanon.

Bartlett was part of a four-man crew dispatched to help a Civil Air Patrol-led recovery effort. He's the only New Hampshire guardsman to lose his life during a state mission.

A bronze plaque commissioned by the New Hampshire National Guard's Officers Association in 1972 death and affixed to the old flight hangar before it was renovated into the new Joint Force Headquarters was being unveiled Wednesday afternoon.

The refurbished plaque is in the entrance way to the Army Aviation Support Facility in Concord.
