REMEMBRANCES

  • Thank you for your faithfullness in REMEMBERING my brother.

    I'm the eldest brother of two younger brothers, with Everett being the second of the three boys. We also have three younger sisters. We were all so close growing up and it wasn't easy when the news came that Everett had been shot down and declared missing. Now, after all these 50 years, our love for him, as well as each other, remains strong, by the grace, love, and mercies of our Father in heaven. Heaven is our final home and that is where there will be an awesome reunion of of all who know and love the Lord. A very special THANKS goes out to each and all who have placed remembrances on this site for my brother Everett the most recent being, Lucy Torre who offered to return the bracelet she sore for so long. Its ok, Llucy, you may keep it as a token of YOUR faithfulness. And a special thanks, also, to James Kurney, for his shared memory. May God bless you, each and all, and may GOD BLESS AMERICA. Sincerely, Chaplain Ray McPherson, CAPT/USN(Ret)

  • He lives on in all our memories

    I never met Capt. Everett McPherson 3-18-66. The name on the bracelet I wore as a young kid. I have found it again after many years and found his mane here. It should go home to his family, if they would like to have it - his name was in my thoughts all these years, and if they would like it, I would be honored to return it in the memory of his service to this country.

  • Final Mission of 1LT Everett A. McPherson

    Posted on 10/19/14 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    On March 18, 1966, 1LT Everett A. McPherson and 1LT Brent E. Davis were the crew on board an EF-10B, one in a flight of two aircraft on an electronic counter-measures mission in support of an air strike approximately 10 miles west of Thanh Hoa City, Thanh Hoa Province. Their flight received 85mm anti-aircraft fire during the mission. There was an explosion in their aircraft while at an altitude of 26,000 feet and over neighboring Nghe An Province. They were believed to have been hit and downed by enemy surface to air missile. A SAR mission over the area produced negative results. Both airmen were initially declared missing in action. Returning U.S. POWs had no information on their fate. Both airmen were initially declared dead/body not recovered, based on a presumptive finding of death. Decades later the remains of Davis were located and on December 8, 1997 he was laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery with full military honors. [Narrative taken from pownetwork.org]

  • Regarding Renee's Recemt Post concerning my brother;s bracelet, Maj. Everett A. McPherson

    Posted on 7/22/14 - by Captain Raymond G. McPherson, CHC/USN(Ret)
    Thank you, Renee, for wearing my brother's MIA Bracelet for so many years. You have been so very faithful to a Fallen Hero, my brother, Maj. Everett A. McPherson. As the older brother of seven siblings, one surviving younger brother, and five surviving younger sisters, we continue to miss Everett. As a retired Navy Chaplain, I took responsibility to organize a Memorial Service for Everett, whose remains have never been recovered. The service was conducted at Arlington National Cemetery 4 June 2010, with full military honors. A flyover by his old Recon Unit from Cherry Point, N.C was organized by the President of the MCARCON Organization and Lead Pilot on the fatal mission when the McPherson/Davis plane was shot down.
