Final Mission of CPT Jack P. Dove Sr.

On the night of July 12, 1967, CPT Jack P. Dove Sr. from the 497th Tactical Fighter Squadron and MAJ Boyd E. Squire from the 606th Air Commando Squadron comprised the crew of a USAF North American T-28D Trojan (# 49-1569) on a night interdiction mission when they went missing near Ban Katoi, just within North Vietnam. Although search and rescue aircraft did spot a wing from the missing T-28, they found no sign of the two crewmen. It was supposed they had been hit by AAA fire and crashed before either could bail out of the aircraft. The two men were classified as Killed in Action, Body Not Recovered. The crash site was excavated and recovered remains were repatriated in June 1992. On July 19, 1995, the U.S. Government announced that the remains of MAJ Squire and CPT Dove had been identified, 28 years and one week after they were lost. [Taken from togetherweserved.com]

Shot down with my uncle

I just learned, through a Google search, that this brave man was in the plane with my uncle, Lt. Col. Boyd E. Squire when they were shot down. As of these years he was such an unknown to me. Brings my uncle's story back to life for me. Thank you for your service Capt. Jack Dove

Not forgotten

Captain Jack Dove was the name on the POW bracelet I had since I was a teenager. Lately, he has been on my mind. Today, when I opened my jewelry box, his bracelet was right on top. This Memorial Day we remember all the heros who give their lives for our freedom. My heart goes out to Captain Dove's family for ill the years of life never lived. On Tuesday, I will be participating in Deployment Swim for our Vets. Each length will be in memory of a fallen soldier. Captain Dove is on the top my list.
