Final Mission of 1LT John E. Duffy

1LT John E. Duffy was the pilot of a Cessna O-2 aircraft on a mission over South Vietnam on April 4, 1970. Duffy, who had graduated from the United States Air Force Academy two years before, had a promising future in the Air Force as a pilot. The Cessna O-2 had only been used by the Air Force four years. The aircraft had a greater range that the O-1, but, like the Bird Dog, lacked adequate armor for low target marking runs. The aircraft was used primarily for observation, but some versions flew psychological warfare mission, urging the Viet Cong to surrender and encouraging those loyal to the Saigon government. On Duffy's mission, his plane went down about 15 miles southwest of the city of Quang Ngai in South Vietnam. He was listed as Missing In Action. No information of substance had surfaced on Duffy since that day until May 1993 when remains were returned that were positively identified as Duffy’s in March 1996. [Taken from pownetwork.org]

From Cadet to Cadet

Sir,

I would like to thank you for your selfless sacrifice during one our nation's most demanding times. I am a cadet at the Air Force Academy, your alma mater. I'm proud to be here, and I'm honored to be researching your history. I hope that by doing this, I can embody your love for this country and willingness to give yourself for others. You are a true hero, and you will not be forgotten.

"Take care my friend, watch your six, and do one more roll for me."

Very Respectfully,

Cadet Fourth Class William B. Duff

Remembering An American Hero

Dear Captain John Everett Duffy, 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

If I should die...remembrances for CAPT. John Everett DUFFY, USAF...who made the ultimate sacrifice!

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.
