Airman Killed During Vietnam War Accounted For

On August 18, 2017, the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency announced, Air Force Reserve 1st Lt. David T. Dinan, III, killed during the Vietnam War, has now been accounted for.

On March 19, 1969, Dinan was a member of the 34th Tactical Fighter Squadron, 288th Tactical Fighter Wing, 7th Air Force, and was the pilot of the number two aircraft in a flight of two F-105s on a strike mission over northern Laos. During the second strafing pass over the target, Dinan transmitted a distress message. The Forward Air Controller then observed Dinan’s parachute enter the jungle, as well as an aircraft crash. Search and rescue aircraft conducted an aerial search and located a parachute and confirmed the death of the pilot, however, due to enemy fire in the area and the hazardous location, his body could not be recovered. The U.S. Air Force subsequently reported Dinan as killed in action.

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

Dinan'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.
