Last Known Activity
On 31 January 1966, Lt. Col Hamilton flew an armed reconnaissance mission over North Vietnam when his F-105D was hit by enemy ground fire over Ha Tinh province. His mission was part of a larger operation, known as Operation Rolling Thunder that attacked air defense systems and the flow of supplies along the Ho Chi Minh Trail. Airborne searches for his crash site that day were unsuccessful.

His remains were finally found in 2005 and he was interred in Arlington National Cemetery
