A SAD NOTIFICATION TO LOVING PARENTS

As a young 2nd Lt. stationed at Kirksville Air Force Station in Northeast Missouri, I was assigned the additional duty as Casualty Assistance Officer. I clearly remember the afternoon in June 1966 when myself and Technical Sgt. Harris were tasked with driving to a rural farm in Bloomfield, Iowa. We had the sad duty of providing the initial, personal notification to the parents of Russell Martin that their son was missing-in-action. It was a deeply emotional moment for me and of course, shocking and distressing for his parents. This incident and Russell's loss, stay with me to this day, 55 years later. May Russell now continue to rest peacefully with Our Supreme Commander in Paradise, along with the other brave and noble veterans who gave their lives in all wars, for the liberty and freedom we enjoy today.

POW / MIA Bracelet Wearer

Both of my Brothers were in Country and one of my Cousins came home in a Flag draped Box from Vietnam, I come from a very Patriotic Family. I was always very sad that my Bracelet Soldier did not come home. I'm so sorry for your families loss, I will always remember Capt. Russell Martin! ♥

FROM THE MARTIN FAMILY THANK YOU EVERYONE

Russ was my grandfather. His wife Sharol (My grandmother) wanted to thank everyone for the kind words and felt it should be known that his remains WERE NEVER recovered. A mass burial in Arlington of consisted of EMPTY caskets. A piece of flight suit or parachute found by JTF-FA with “Martin” & “Warren” handwritten on it was their presumptive finding of death. If anyone would like more details feel free to contact us.
