From eHam.net:
ARRL Life Member and past ARRL Louisiana Section Manager John M. "Wondy" Wondergem, K5KR, of Metairie, Louisiana, died June 7. He was 91. A retired US Navy captain and World War II veteran, Wondergem in May of 1962 was at the controls of the helicopter that retrieved Astronaut Scott Carpenter after his Project Mercury Aurora 7 space capsule splashed down some 250 miles off course in the Atlantic.

Does anyone know if John Wondergem ever told the story of the Carpenter recovery in print anywhere? I would love to read his account of that day.
