Thank You

Dear Major Lucius Heiskell,
Thank you for your service as a Single Engine Observation Aircraft Pilot. You are still MIA. PLEASE COME HOME. The war was years ago, but we all need to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness. Be at peace.

I've had your bracelet for many years.

Last week we laid to rest SGT Bailey Keeton who was finally brought home after dying in battle near Chosin in Korea 66 years ago. My prayer is for you, too, to make your way home. There will never be the right words to express the sacrifice made by you, SGT Keeton, and your loved ones. I do rejoice in the assurance in God's Word that one day we'll meet in the presence of our Creator and I will try to thank you for defending my freedom.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear Major Lucius Lamar Heiskell, 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

Final Mission of U.S. Air Force helicopter HH-3E tail number 65-12779

On February 6, 1967, CAPT Lucius L. Heiskell was a pilot and was flying an O1F aircraft on a visual reconnaissance mission with another O1F when his aircraft was struck by enemy fire forcing him to bail out. His parachute was followed to the ground and voice contact with him indicated that immediate rescue was not feasible due to enemy troops in the area. Beeper signals continued and later an HH3E helicopter flown by MAJ Patrick H. Wood was dispatched to recover Heiskell. He was at this time located near the border of Laos and North Vietnam about 5 miles from the Mu Gia Pass. Wood's crew that day included CAPT Richard A. Kibbey and SSST Donald J. Hall. Heiskell was hoisted aboard, but as the helicopter was departing the area, it was hit by ground fire causing it to explode and crash. The helicopter pararescueman (D.D. Hackney) survived, was rescued and treated for burns. The remainder of the crew, Hall, Kibbey and Wood, as well as Heiskell, were not located. Patrick H. Wood was promoted to the rank of Colonel during the time he was maintained Missing in Action.
