  • Airman Missing From Vietnam War Accounted For

    Posted on 9/6/17 - by Michael Mc Mahon
    Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Donald J. Hall, missing from the Vietnam War, has now been accounted for.

    On Feb. 6, 1967, Hall was a member of Detachment 5, 38th Aerospace Rescue and Recovery Squadron, when he, along with three other service members, were flying an HH-3E helicopter on a rescue and recovery mission over northern Vietnam. After rescuing the pilot of a downed aircraft, Hall’s helicopter was hit by enemy ground fire, resulting in an internal explosion and crash. Hall was subsequently reported missing in action.

    Interment services are pending; a formal notification will be released 7-10 days prior to scheduled funeral services.

    The support from the government of Vietnam was vital to the success of this recovery.

    Hall's name is recorded on the Walls of the Missing at an American Battle Monuments Commission site along with the others who are missing from the Vietnam War. A rosette will be placed next to his name to indicate he has been accounted for.

    Dear CMS Donald Joe Hall, 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
