Namesake

I got my middle name from him. My father was in Nam with him and took his death hard. My fathers call sign was Gross Bear and he was a backseater/WSO in F105 flying Wild Weasel strikes. I have a rubbing and pictures from the traveling wall but have yet to go to the wall in DC. I always wanted to learn more about him but Dad didnt like to talk about his time there. Thank you for you service and sacrafice for our freedom

Final Mission of LTC Scott W. McIntire

On December 10, 1971, LTC Scott W. McIntire and his aircraft commander, MAJ Robert E. Belli, were in one of two F-105G aircraft on a mission over the Mu Gia Pass in support of a B-52 strike. They expended two AGM-45 missiles against enemy Fan Song radar which had acquired their aircraft. Their aircraft was then hit by a surface to air missile, the explosion coming to the rear of LTC McIntire and of sufficient force that it rendered MAJ Belli, in front of LTC McIntire, initially unconscious. MAJ Belli ejected both himself and LTC McIntire. MAJ Belli was rescued by search and rescue aircraft but LTC McIntire could not be located. MAJ Belli's rescue, because of the extreme difficulty in rescuing someone from this high threat area, became a feature article in the Stars & Stripes military newspaper. On December 11, 1971, a search and rescue helicopter located LTC McIntire hanging limp in his parachute in a tall tree. A flight surgeon on the aircraft stated LTC McIntire appeared lifeless and stated his professional view that the conditions of weather and the position of the body after hanging suspended for 20 hours indicated LTC McIntire would have died of hypothermia within six hours and was probably dead on December 11th. Heavy ground fire drove off the SAR aircraft before LTC McIntire could be recovered. LTC McIntire was not reported alive in the northern Vietnamese prison system and his remains have not been recovered. He was initially declared missing and in May 1972 was declared dead/body not recovered. [Taken from pownetwork.org]

For the man I never met - Does anyone know any of his surviving relatives?

I found your POW/MIA bracelet in a jewelry box from an estate sale in Madison, Wi. I put it on this Memorial weekend to honor you while I tried to find out who you were and if there were any remaining family members who might want this treasure. I figured I would be your family until I could track them down for you. Dear sir, I am honored to wear this on their behalf until I can hopefully get in contact with someone to pass it onto one of your heirs.
If anyone reads this and knows any relative I can contact, please let me know. I am including my e-mail address. Mark your e-mail with his rank & name so I will not mistake it as spam please. I want to honor this man appropriately. Thank you so much for your help. Robin Moag-May

LtCol Scott McIntire

I also got my bracelet in 1972. I wore it for years before finally putting it in my jewelry box. Every so often I look at it & wonder. Today I searched the internet & found what is believed to have happened to him. I had hoped for better news, but at least I know, & I will never forget that time & the sacrifices made by so many.
