Yankee Papa 13 — Part 4

Mission Over, but Not for a Long, Long Time Forgotten

Six years after “Yankee Papa 13” ran in LIFE, Burrows was killed, along with three other journalists — Henri Huet, Kent Potter and Keisaburo Shimamoto — when a helicopter in which they were flying was shot down over Laos in February, 1971. He was 44 years old.
