  • Final Mission of MAJ Stuart M. Andrews

    Posted on 8/19/15 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    MAJ Stuart M. Andrews was the pilot of an O-1E aircraft on which his observer-in-training was 1LT John F. Conlon III in March 1966. Andrews and his observer were sent on a cross-country visual reconnaissance mission in South Vietnam. Andrews and Conlon departed Qui Nhon Airfield on March 4, 1966 at 3:20 p.m. At 3:40 p.m. they made radio contact with a Special Forces Camp in the area and were asked to check campfires that had been spotted. That radio contact with the Special Forces camp was the last word anyone heard of Andrews and Conlon. There was at that time no indication that anything was wrong, but when the plane failed to arrive at its destination, both men were declared missing. When 591 Americans were released from prisoner of war camps in 1973, Andrews and Conlon were not among them. Nearly five years later, in December 1977, they were presumptively declared dead, based on no information that they were alive. Stuart M. Andrews was promoted to the rank of Colonel and John F. Conlon III was promoted to the rank of Major during the period they were maintained missing. In February of 2006 a joint POW/MIA Accounting Command-Vietnamese team excavated a site in the Binh Dinh Province and found aircraft debris, personal effects, human remains and a dog tag that related to the crew. JPAC scientists confirmed the crew’s identity from remains excavated at the site. [Taken from pownetwork.org]

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 2/22/14 - by Curt Carter ccarter02@earthlink.net
    Dear Colonel Stuart Merrill Andrews, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter
