Col John W. Armstrong - Birthday Remembrance (91st)

The “Friends of Rocky Versace” once again remember one of Rocky’s fellow alumni from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and Vietnam War MIAs, Col John William Armstrong, on what would’ve been his 91st birthday - 5 December 2017.

As indicated in the 28 Aug 2015 entry, below, Col Armstrong was the pilot of an F-4C Phantom jet aircraft that went down over Laos. His Weapons Systems Officer, Capt Lance P. Sijan (USAFA graduate) ejected from the damaged aircraft, evaded captivity for more than a month, was captured, transported to Hanoi and, in an extremely weakened condition, died in captivity of the communist North Vietnamese. His remains were repatriated to the U.S. in 1974 (more than 9 months after the start of "Operation Homecoming.") Capt Sijan posthumously received the Medal of Honor. Col Armstrong's remains have not yet been located. His case is in the "Active Pursuit" category by the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA).
