On February 5, 1966, an SH-3A Sea King (bureau number unknown) with fifteen crew and passengers crashed in the South China Sea while en route to the fleet oiler USS Navasota (AO 106). Search and rescue efforts recovered twelve of the men from the helicopter, but the last three could not be located following the crash.

Shipfitter First Class Glenn Edward Asmussen, who entered the U.S. Navy from the District of Columbia, served aboard the Navasota and was aboard this Sea King at the time of its loss. He was not recovered and remains unaccounted for. Today, Shipfitter First Class Asmussen is memorialized on the Courts of the Missing at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific.

Based on all information available, DPAA assessed the individual's case to be in the analytical category of Non-recoverable.
