In Remembrance of Captain Virgil K. Meroney III

On March 1, 1969, Virgil K. Meroney III lost his life fighting for our country. Although we did not know Captain Meroney personally, my husband wore his MIA bracelet until he was repatriated, identified, and interred. We were fortunate to attend his funeral and burial services in 2012 in Fayetteville, Arkansas, where he received full military honors and a motorcycle escort of patriots. Several attendees, including my husband, offered their MIA bracelets to the family – some were buried with Captain Meroney and some were placed in a museum. It was heartrending and touching to be in the presence of so many people who came to pay their respects. Today, March 1, 2023, 54 years later, we remember Captain Meroney and honor him who gave his “last full measure of devotion”. Rest in Peace Captain Virgil K. Meroney III.

Honored

I was one of the pilots who flew Capt Meroney home. I myself was an Air Force Officer and a fighter pilot like Virgil. I was sad to hear of his loss but honored that I was part of his return. I will never forget his sacrifice. God Bless
