Maj Bell on Memorial Day

Dear Major Bell Family,

My father, Col Robert M Horne, USAF RET, served with Major Bell and they were room mates in Udorn. My dad was a Jolly Green Pilot as well and on alert the day Major Bell was shot down. He thinks about him often, as do I because of the stories I hear and the times they shared. May God Bless you and your family this Memorial Day. We remember you.

Robert M. Horne, Jr

Tribute to Holly Bell

I never got a chance to thank Holly Bell for his 6 October 1969 rescue since I rotated back to the States as soon as I was released from the hospital. Thanks Holly. You and your crew did a fantastic job in picking us up after we were shot down in Laos. Phil Conran.
