Was with my Father

To the Family of Col. Scott, my heart still goes out to you. He was the Pilot of the F4 my Father, Col. Peter Stewart, was in. They were both doing what they loved most, and were serving their country as proud Americans.

I have tried unsuccessfully to contact you over the years, but, please, remember that my thoughts have always been with you.

IN REMEMBRANCE OF A FINE AIR FORCE PILOT WHOSE NAME SHALL LIVE FOREVER MORE


ON 15 MARCH 1966

CAPTAIN

MARTIN RONALD SCOTT

WAS THE PILOT OF AN

F4C PHANTOM FIGHTER / BOMBER

ASSIGNED A MISSION OVER NORTH VIETNAM.


HIS BOMBARDIER / NAVIGATOR

ON THE FLIGHT WAS VETERAN PILOT

LIEUTENANT COLONEL

PETER JOSEPH STEWART



THE FLIGHT DEPARTED UBON AIRFIELD, THAILAND IN THE LATE AFTERNOON FOR THE ARMED RECONNAISSANCE FLIGHT THAT WOULD TAKE THEM OVER THE CITY OF DIEN BIEN PHU IN NORTH VIETNAM.
SCOTT AND STEWART WERE NUMBER TWO IN A TWO PLANE FLIGHT ABOUT ONE MILE SOUTH OF DIEN BIEN PHU AIRPORT WHEN THE FLIGHT LEADER SPOTTED TWO TRUCKS ON THE MAIN HIGHWAY AND DIRECTED THE NUMBER TWO CREW TO MAKE A LOW LEVEL BOMBING PASS. MOMENTS LATER THE LEADER OBSERVED WHAT HE LATER DESCRIBED AS A DENSE EXPLOSION RESEMBLING A NAPALM DROP IN THE TARGET AREA.
REPEATED ATTEMPTS TO RAISE THE NUMBER TWO PLANE FAILED AND BOTH SCOTT AND STEWART WERE DECLARED AS

MISSING IN ACTION.

BECAUSE THE AIRCRAFT WENT DOWN IN A HEAVILY POPULATED AREA DEEP INSIDE ENEMY TERRITORY AN ORGANIZED RESCUE SEARCH WAS NOT POSSIBLE.
IN 1972 THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENCE RECEIVED A REPORT FROM A REFUGEE WHO STATED HE WAS SHOWN THE CRASH SITE AND THE GRAVES OF THE TWO PILOTS STATING THAT THE PLANE WAS THE ONLY ONE SHOT DOWN IN THAT AREA BUT NONE OF THIS INFORMATION COULD EVER BE SUBSTANTIATED.

BOTH PILOTS WERE POSTHUMOUSLY PROMOTED TO THE RANK OF COLONEL.





PER ARDUA AD ASTRA





YOU ARE NOT FORGOTTEN

NOR SHALL YOU EVER BE

If I should die...remembrances for COL. Martin Ronald SCOTT, USAF...who fought for the right without question or pause!!!!!!!

If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.
