Forty-One Years Later

U.S. Navy Quartermaster SEAMAN Daniel Sullivan (left) and Quartermaster SEAMAN Shawn Canfield (right) properly fold the American Flag (National Standard) after flying it from the mast aboard the Kitty Hawk Class Aircraft Carrier USS Kitty Hawk (CV-63) on December 20, 2006, to honor the 41st anniversary of the death of U.S Navy CAPT Guy D. Johnson. This flag covered CAPT Johnson's casket during his funeral and was sent by his family to the Kitty Hawk to be flown for this anniversary date. CAPT Johnson (pilot) and LT CMDR Lee E. Nordahl (navigator) were shot down and killed on December 20, 1965, while flying a reconnaissance mission over North Vietnam in an RA-5C Vigilante reconnaissance aircraft after taking off from the Kitty Hawk. CAPT Johnson's remains were returned to the United States in 1976 and interned at Arlington National Cemetery in 1977. LT CMDR Nordahl's remains have not been found.

Dear LCdr Lee Nordahl, Thank you for your service as a Naval Flight Officer on the USS KITTY HAWK. You are still MIA, please come home. Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart. It’s a cold snowy winter day. Time passes quickly. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness, especially now. Be at peace.

Lcdr. Lee Nordahl, still have your bracelet since the mid-70's

This is the first I was able to confirm that Lee's remains have been found and that he is now at eternal rest. Kept his bracelet in my top dresser drawer and said a prayer for him every time I saw it.
