    Dear WO Wade Ellen,
    Thank you for your service as a Helicopter Pilot. We remember all you who gave their all. It has been too long, and it's about time for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

I honor your memory with frequent facebook posts remembering you and your great sacrifice. I know we will be reunited one sweet day in heaven. Love, Your sisterly cousin

    Dear Wade, I'm remembering you this Memorial Day. I only knew you briefly in 1971 as you & my husband Mike graduated from WOC school at Ft. Rucker. You were just a few years younger than us. I remember you as being a very sweet young man who loved the Lord & his family. Your hopes & dreams included marrying your girlfriend whose name I believe was Gina. After graduating as a WO 1 your orders took you to Vietnam. Mike staid at Rucker to transition into Chinooks. I remember that Mike wrote to you when you were deployed & his last letter came back as undeliverable. We prayed for your safe return but that was not to be. Mike has since passed on to the Lord also. Perhaps you & he are stick buddies in heaven. I've sent your name & story to our adult children so your sacrifice will not be forgotten.

    Does anyone know how I can contact Wade's family? Does anyone know if JPAC every recovered or attempted to recover his remains?
