June 13, 2004 the mission started as support reconnaissance, but Claude was soon called to assist troops in contact with insurgents. Claude was in the left seat operating the systems when the pilot warned him something was wrong. The fuel control had failed, and the entire rotor dropped off, and was unable to sustain flight. Claude was quick to send a mayday call out before crashing.
They hit hard and landed in a swamp, rolling, fuel spilling all over them. Upon impact, Claude felt a jolt of pain up his spine. The helicopter landed on its side, the cyclic pinned against Claude’s leg. “I was in water up to my neck. I actually tasted the fuel in my mouth. I saw the engine smoking. I tried to get out, and I couldn’t. I was pinned,” Claude remembers.
It’s a person’s worst nightmare and greatest fear combined-drowning or being burned alive. But thanks to Claude’s mayday call, help arrived quickly. The area was secured, and shortly after, the MEDEVAC landed.
Claude was taken to Baghdad Combat Surgical Hospital. After four surgeries, doctors didn’t think he would make it, and if he did, would probably never walk again. Determined to beat the odds, Claude was eventually sent back to his native Hawaii to recover at home on convalescent leave. “It took me eight months to start walking straight again, so that was challenging, but I appreciate things now,” says Claude, “I can walk.”
Fifteen months after the crash and several Army medical waivers, he was approved to fly again, and accepted a deployment back to Iraq. “I needed to go back, because I felt I didn’t finish the job the first time. It was important for me to deploy again both mentally and emotionally,” Claude explains.
Claude retired in December 2008. Today, he serves as a civilian pilot assigned to MEDEVAC missions for the Maryland State Police. Claude became involved with Wounded Warrior Project® as a peer mentor, because he wanted to do something for injured veterans. “A combat veteran understands another combat veteran’s emotional and mental state. I had a lot of close calls. I appreciate what a soldier goes through.”
