    I found a piece of plastic with half his name, in a hillside ricefield outside Phonsavanh in 2005. A watch strap with a little metal month calendar. Pieces of a survival map. It was my first trip with the POW/MIA accounting command. Everybody else on the downed B52 had been picked up and returned safely to Thailand, that night near the end of the war, but Frank waited a few decades for his final resting place to be known.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear Colonel Frank Alton Gould, 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

  • Remembering Frank

    Frank and I were great friends, crew mates,and roommates. We flew 54 B-52D combat missions from March to August 1971. I was upgraded Aircraft Commander (A/C) and assigned my own crew for another 168 missions. Frank loved to sing operettas in the shower (and he knew the words and had a good voice) and always had a smile on his face and in his heart. He is much missed.

  • Not Forgotten

    I have not forgotten you. I chair the Adoption Committee for The National League of Families of Prisoners of War and Missing in Action in Southeast Asia. We will always remember the 1,889 Americans still unaccounted for in Southeast Asia and the thousands of others that lost their lives. We will not stop our efforts until all of you are home where you belong.

    We need to reach the next generation so that they will carry on when our generation is no longer able. To do so, we are attempting to locate photographs of all the missing. If you are reading this remembrance and have a photo and/or memory of this missing American that you would like to share for our project, please contact me at:
