Maj. Martin Scott 3-15-66

This evening I was going through my box of saved memories and found the bracelet that I received during my senior year in high school. It has been an honor to wear his bracelet for many years. I am grateful he has been found and returned home. I am so sorry for your loss.

AWARDED FOR ACTIONS
DURING Vietnam War
Service: Air Force
Division: 13th Air Force
GENERAL ORDERS:
Headquarters, Pacific Air Forces, Special Orders G-237 (July 30, 1966)
CITATION:
The President of the United States of America, authorized by Act of Congress July 9, 1918 (amended by an act of July 25, 1963), takes pride in presenting the Silver Star (Posthumously) to Captain Martin Ronald Scott, United States Air Force, for gallantry in action in connection with military operations involving conflict with an armed hostile force while serving with the 8th Tactical Fighter Wing, in action near Hanoi, North Vietnam, on 25 February 1966. On that date, Captain Scott volunteered to perform an extremely hazardous "Special" mission deep within the most heavily defended portion of North Vietnam. With complete disregard for his personal safety, Captain Scott flew his aircraft at levels of twenty-five to fifty feet with unerring accuracy through extremely heavy and accurate anti-aircraft fire over forbidding and hostile terrain to two different targets. Withdrawal again subjected him to intense and accurate fire and hostile interceptors, and a dwindling fuel supply added to his perils. Despite the extreme hazards involved, the mission was executed exactly as planned. By his gallantry and devotion to duty, Captain Scott has reflected great credit upon himself and the United States Air Force.

I too have your bracelet since 1967.

I never knew you until I received your bracelet. I was 24 at the time and unable to serve for medical reasons. Today I see that you are no longer missing. God bless you and your family and thank you for your service.
