 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
Major Martin served as an instructor at EWO school, Mather AF. He went to "Wild Weasel" school. He later served at Osan AB during the Pueblo incident.

On 15 July 1968, Major Gobel D. James, pilot, and Capt. Larry E. Martin, co-pilot, were assigned a mission over North Vietnam in their F-105F Thunderchief. At a point about 5 miles northwest of the city of Dong Hoi in Quang Binh Province, North Vietnam, the aircraft was shot down. Major James, at least, successfully ejected from the aircraft and was captured. The fate of Capt. Martin was unknown.

However, his remains were found and returned in 1989.
