My SAE Brother

I think of you often. Especially on this Memorial Day. We could have been together on that day you were lost, had they accepted me to fly. You are not forgotten my SAE Mizzou Brother. Eternally, Gary Niedfeldt

Final Mission of LTJG Joseph V. Murray

On February 18, 1966, LTJG Joseph V. Murray and LTJG Thomas A. Schroeffel crewed an A-6A Intruder, BN 151797, as the wingman on a daylight armed reconnaissance mission in a mountainous area about 70 miles west of Hanoi. During the mission, the two aircraft located and attacked trucks on a mountain road. While conducting a shallow dive-bomb delivery using retarded "snake eye" bombs, Murray apparently fell victim to target fixation and failed to initiate his pull-out soon enough, the Intruder impacted the hillside about 500 yards beyond the target. Neither crewman ejected before impact and the crash was not survivable. Both were declared Killed in Action/Body not Recovered. [Taken from virtualwall.org]

Remembering An American Hero

Dear LTJG Joseph Vaughn Murray, 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
