    I wore a bracelet with you name for many years. Today I took it out and found information about you on the internet. Something that you would know nothing about. I want to thank you again for your service and your sacrifice to country. I may never get to Washington to see "The Wall", but it was so good to see you remembered. Thank you.

    FB is posting a person that has the MIA bracelet for Glendon Ammon. The person would love to honor you with the return of the item. I, also, wore a bracelet for a lot of years. Never received any information on my MIA. So happy to see someone out there (with more tenacity than I) has hung in there and would like to share this with the family of Glendon. Lee Ammon. Love and Prayers to the family and you had an amazing young man in your family. Love and Prayers to y'all.

  • FAMILY RECEIVING BRACELET

    Posted on 1/25/14 - by Lisa
    Hi Pam,
    I noticed that the FB post continued to be shared because there was no way of commenting on the post in order to let everyone know that the family had been found. So happy to see/hear people caring enough to "pay it forward". Roxann has spoken with one of his sons and is mailing the bracelet to them. For those interested, Glendon Lee Ammon had three sons. There were two bracelets previously returned to the family (that, according to the "found" son's wife, have great stories to go along with the return). She was delighted to share that now each of Glendon Ammon's three sons will each have their own bracelet. The family also feels as though these most recent events were Glendon Lee Ammon's most recent way of saying "hi" to the family. God Bless All involved. Nothing like things coming in 3's! :)

  • FAMILY FOUND IN ORDER TO RETURN BRACELET

    Posted on 1/24/14 - by Lisa
    After having sent Email to the alumni association at BSU (where the grandson had an email address) I discovered that the son of this MIA man is the CEO at Omega Electronic Board Repair Company in Arlington, TX. I have spoken with him at 1-800-722-7323. The grandson mentioned on this page is his the CEO's nephew. A woman from PA contacted the son (CEO) yesterday and told him she would get in contact with the owner of the bracelet and connect them. He has heard nothing yet and gave me his wife's FB contact info (Raymi Howe Ammon, who I have sent a message to) so that I can make an effort to connect them with Roxann Ramberg-Cosette. FB can be kinda cool; however, I think because of settings it's difficult to get ahold of Roxann via FB. I was unable to comment on the post regarding the bracelet, although it has been shared over 32,00 times (wow!). I did send a FB message which will go to her "other folder" because we are not connected on FB. I told the son (CEO) to have his wife check her "other folder" and Roxann needs to do the same! The connection is about to be made! :)

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 9/19/13 - by Curt Carter
    Dear Colonel Glendon Lee Ammon, 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

    I wore your MIA bracelet and heard updates from your brother for years. I was living in Atlanta and saw the news when you 'came home' - still thank God in my prayers every night for your sacrifice.

  • Remembrance profile begun on AFTWS

    Posted on 6/13/09 - by Mike Bell, AFTWS member #83323 bluehawkzoomie@yahoo.com
    Col. Ammon (then a Capt.) punched out of his severely ground-fire battle damaged F-105D "Thud" tail #62-4371 about 22 nautical miles NE of Hanoi, North Vietnam on 21 Sep 66, while serving with the 357th Tactical Fighter Squadron of the 355th TFW based at Takhli RTAFB, Thailand. An open chute was seen and a brief radio signal was heard from dense and heavily defended jungle. His remains were returned on 23 Aug 78 and he is buried at Arlington.

    A remembrance profile was started for him at:

  • IN REMEMBRANCE OF THIS TOP UNITED STATES AIR FORCE FIGHTER PILOT WHOSE NAME SHALL LIVE FOREVER MORE

    Posted on 6/12/02 - by CLAY MARSTON
    COLONEL


    GLENDON LEE AMMON


    served as the


    PILOT


    of an


    F105D " THUNDERCHIEF "


    ( # 62-4371 )


    call sign - WILDCAT 01





    YOU ARE NOT FORGOTTEN

    NOR SHALL YOU EVER BE







    On 21 September 1966 he was the pilot of an F105D

    Thunderchief in a flight of four F105s sent on a

    combat mission about 22 nautical miles northeast

    of Hanoi in the Sontay area, with a specific target

    of a railway bridge.


    The flight was inbound at about 3000 feet when,

    just prior to the pop up point, his aircraft was seen

    to be on fire from heavy anti-aircraft fire in the

    area, and other pilots in the flight confirmed that

    Colonel Ammon radioed, " I'm punching out."


    His aircraft yawed violently to the right and the

    right wing began to disintegrate. As the right

    wing came off, his wingman saw the canopy come

    off and Colonel Ammon ejected, with his parachute

    beginning to deploy.


    Others in the flight observed that his parachute

    descended to the ground and a brief emergency radio

    beeper was heard.


    At that time all other members of the flight were

    taking evasive manoeuvers and lost sight of Colonel

    Ammon.


    However, the area was so deep into enemy territory

    and heavily occupied by enemy troops, that no search

    and rescue attempts were conducted.


    Whether Colonel Ammon was actually captured is

    unknown.


    However, his proximity to the enemy on the ground

    would seem to guarantee that he could be accounted for.

    If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.
