 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
He was flying support on a medical evacuation mission over Laos when his A-1 had engine trouble and probably also sustained ground fire damage over a heavily enemy-controlled area. It is unclear if he safely reached the ground after bailing out or not; if he did, he was probably killed or captured as there were numerous enemy troops nearby.
There was also much mystery and speculation as to his fate and whether he had become a POW or not.
His remains were found at some later point, repatriated in 1997, identified in 2002, and interred at Arlington in 2004 in Section 68 Grave 337.
