Commander Robert C. Frosio - POW/MIA RECOGNITION DAY 2019

The Department of Defense conducted a ceremony at the Pentagon on Friday, 20 September 2019 in recognition of POW/MIA Recognition Day. Deputy Defense Secretary David L. Nordquist remembered the 1,587 MIAs from the Vietnam War as well as all those still unaccounted for from WWII, the Korean War, the Cold War and other conflicts. Since the 2018 Ceremony, DPAA has positively identified 7 Vietnam War MIAs. Commander Robert Clarence Frosio, USNA Class of 1950, is one of those 1,587 MIAs unaccounted for in Southeast Asia from the Vietnam War. He is the only graduate from his U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis class who is still MIA.

Still Remembered

I had the pleasure of serving with CDR Frosio prior to Viet Nam while he was assigned to ATTACKRON 76 home based at NAS Oceana VA. I think he was an LT at the time, but he was admired and respected by everyone in the squadron, officers and men alike. RIP Bob Frosio, you are still in the hearts and minds of your fellow squadron mates after 51 years.
