  • POW MIA Bracelet

    Posted on 1/20/19 - by Joyce forallcats@aol.com
    I have worn the POW MIA bracelet since I was in college in late 1967, when I graduated from college. This bracelet honors the bravery and sacrifices of Lt. Col. Louis Jones. I still wear this bracelet this very day and never, ever take it off.

  • Final Mission of MAJ Louis F. Jones

    Posted on 12/13/17 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    On November 29, 1967, pilot MAJ Louis F. Jones and backseater 1LT J.L. Lemoine comprised the crew of a USAF F-4C Phantom II (#64-0701) from the 558th Tactical Fighter Squadron at Cam Rahn Bay Air Base. They were on a combat mission in Laos, attacking a road junction on the Ho Chi Minh Trail some 30 miles west of Khe Sanh, RVN. Their aircraft was hit by anti-aircraft fire as they pulled off from their second attack run, burst into flames, and crashed near the town of Sepone. Although 1LT Lemoine, was able to eject and was successfully recovered by helicopter, there was no evidence that MAJ Jones got out of the Phantom before ground impact. He was carried as missing rather than killed in action and was twice promoted before the Secretary of the Air Force approved a finding that he had died in the incident. Jones’ remains were repatriated on November 20, 2000, with positive identification announced on November 26, 2001. [Taken from ejection-history.org.uk, 12tfw.org, and virtualwall.org]

    I still have Lt. Col. Louis Farr's POW bracelet. If his family would like to have it, I would be happy to send it to them.
