Brave Warrior

Master Sergeant Adachi was a member of the 16th Special Operations Squadron, Ubon Air Base, Thailand. On April 22, 1970, he was the gunner of a Lockheed Attack Aircraft Gunship II (AC-130A "Spectre") on a commando hunt mission over the Ho Chi Minh trail in southern Laos. During its fourth strike his aircraft was hit by anti-aircraft fire and began burning. He parachuted to the ground and was declared missing. His remains were recovered on November 15, 1993 and identified on September 1, 1995.

MIA BRACELET

I too wore Tom's bracelet for many years. I'm getting older
now so if any family member would like to have it, I would be pleased to send it to them before I am gone. I'm from Sebring, Ohio and got it in high school. Graduated in 74.
