CTIC Frederick A. Randall
September 11, 1939 – April 15, 1969

A native of Monponsett, Massachusetts, Frederick Arthur Randall was born on September 11, 1939 to Arthur W. Randall and Nellie M Randall.  Frederick was married to the former Nancy Carroll Rosensteel and they lived at the New Grand Hotel in Yokohama, Japan.  The couple met while Mrs. Randall was employed in Washington, D. C.

Chief Randall was a Russian linguist and Morse code operator. Retired Commander (then CTI2) Cody Hanna remembered him as a dedicated career man, married but with no children. (His wife heard of the shootdown via the American radio station in Japan (the Far East Network) before the notification team was able to contact her). Since the flight was essentially a bennie flight with a mission enroute, Chief Randall bumped CTI2 Hanna, who was originally scheduled to take the flight.

Frederick Randall was awarded the Purple Heart, the National Defense Service Medal and the Korean Defense Service Medal.
