Final Mission of CAPT George W. Morris

Final Mission of CAPT George W. Morris
1LT Mark A. Peterson was the pilot and CAPT George W. Morris the co-pilot of an OV-10A aircraft with the mission of locating two downed Navy pilots on January 27, 1973 within hours of the signing of the Paris Peace Accords ending American military involvement in Vietnam. When their aircraft was over Quang Tri Province, South Vietnam, it was hit by enemy fire and both Peterson and Morris were forced to eject. Both safely parachuted to the ground and one was in radio contact with rescuers. However, neither could be located or rescued, apparently because of the tactical situation on the ground. It is not known for certain that Morris and Peterson were captured. The two Navy pilots they were trying to rescue were Phillip A Kientzler and Harley H. Hall. Kientzler was captured and released a few months later in the general prisoner release. Kientzler was told Hall had been killed. His remains were returned in 1993. Peterson and Morris remain missing.

May George's soul be blessed forever

I remember George when we were students at Cal State LA in 1969. He had a crush on one of my sorority sisters. I don'y recall ever seeing George without a wide friendly grin. He was the kindest, friendliest person imaginable. I was crushed to learn of his untimely death and have visited his memorial in Washington. Thank you and your family for your ultimate sacrifice.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear Captain George William Morris Jr, 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
