  • Final Mission of LCDR Michael E. Dunn

    Posted on 11/10/14 - by
    LCDR Norman E. Eidsmoe was a pilot assigned to Attack Squadron 165 onboard the aircraft carrier USS RANGER. On January 26, 1968, Eidsmoe launched with his Bombardier/Navigator (BN) LCDR Michael E. Dunn from the carrier in their A-6A Intruder attack aircraft on a low-level, single-plane, night strike mission into North Vietnam. Two A-4 Skyhawk and two A-7 Corsair attack aircraft were scheduled to provide mission support if required. The flight proceeded normally to the initial run-in point at the coast. The flight was tracked inbound to approximately 5 miles from the target at which time radar contact was lost dur to low altitude and distance from tracking stations. Support aircraft remained on station about 30 minutes, waiting for the attack aircraft to regain radio contact at the designated time and position upon egress from the target area. The support aircraft neither heard no saw the strike aircraft again. No radio contact of any kind was heard from the aircraft. The UHF radio "guard" frequency was monitored by all the support aircraft until low fuel states required their return to ship. No surface-to-air missile (SAM) launches were received and no anti-aircraft fire was noted by the support aircraft, even though there were known enemy defenses in the target area including automatic weapons, light and medium anti-aircraft artillery and one known SAM site. The search and rescue (SAR) expanded the following day with the sortie of two RA-5C Vigilante reconnaissance aircraft. The electronic and photographic search produced no significant findings. It was later determined that the aircraft had crashed approximately 7 kilometers north of the city of Vinh, Nghe An Province, North Vietnam. Eidsmoe and Dunn were declared Missing in Action. When 591 Americans were returned at the end of the war, Dunn and Eidsmoe were not among them. [Taken from]

    Thank you for your service. Thank you to your family for enduring the pain of not knowing what happened to you and again when they learned of your loss.

    I will look for your resting place at Arlington when I'm in Washington, DC this summer.

    With all my respect,
