    Thank you for your sacrifice Sir. Today we posted that you were lost and we will remember you and the life you used to protect our country. My dad fought in Vietnam and he was lucky to come back. Never easy but he was home. SO thank you.

    On August 12, 1966, Capt. David J. Allinson was the pilot of an F105D Thunderchief aircraft sent on a bombing mission over North Vietnam. Allinson was the lead in a flight of four aircraft with a target in Nghia Lo Province near the city of Yen Bai. While making a strafing run on the target, his aircraft was
    hit by automatic weapons fire forcing him to eject. His descent was observed to the ground where he landed in some trees along a ridge. Attempts to contact him by radio were unsuccessful. He was classified Missing in Action. Interestingly, he ejected from his aircraft not many miles from a prison at Yen Bai which was later
    known to have been a detention facility for American Prisoners of War. In 1973, 591 American Prisoners of War were released, but Allinson was not among them. Although he was alive when last seen, and ejected into an enemy held area, the Vietnamese deny any knowledge of him or of his fate. He is among nearly 2800 who were unaccounted for at the end of the war. INFO from: http://www.pownetwork.org/bios/a/a013.htm
