Never Forgotten True Hero

Major Martin Ronald Scott is the brother of my best friend William (Bill) Scott, sadly deceased at the young age of 40. I purchased a POW/MIA bracelet with him name on it for many, many years and have passed it down to my son who has served in the Marines. I am still very good and close friends with Major Scott's niece, Vicky Scott, and nephew, Larry Scott. Their mother, Darlene Scott, is now deceased.Vicky told me recently that Major Scott had been declared deceased around 1991 and sadly his wife is now deceased. Vicky does stay in contact with Major Scott's son, Mark Scott. All of the remembrances posted in honor of Major Scott are truly awesome and very appreciated by the family.

Not Forgotten

I thought the bracelet I wore was lost more than 30 years ago. I went to get something out of an old desk tonight and it fell out. We got these starting in 1970 to honor the POW's and MIA Veteran's from the Vietnam War. I wore that bracelet faithfully and I had always wondered if I would ever someday find out what happened to Major Martin Scott 3-15-66. Thanks to the power of Google, I found out this evening. I wasn't the only one who wore his bracelet, but I would proudly do it again for all of our service men and women who go out there every day and fight the fight, so that we can live in a free country. Thank you Col. Scott for your sacrifice. RIP.

Final Mission of CAPT Martin R. Scott

On March 15, 1966, CAPT Martin R. Scott was the pilot of an F-4C Phantom fighter/bomber assigned a mission over North Vietnam. His bombardier/navigator on the flight was veteran pilot LTC Peter J. 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 Binh Phu in North Vietnam. Scott and Stewart were number 2 in a two-plane flight. About one mile south of the Dien Bien Phu airport, the flight leader spotted two trucks on the main highway and directed the number two crew to make a low bombing pass. Moments later, the leader observed what he described as an dense explosion resembling a napalm drop in the target area. Repeated attempts to raise the number 2 plane failed. Scott and Stewart were declared missing. Because the plane went down in a heavily populated area deep in enemy territory, an organized search for Scott and Stewart was not possible. There was no evidence of survival. Peter J. Stewart and Martin J. Scott were both promoted to the rank of Colonel during the period they were maintained Missing in Action. [Taken from pownetwork.org]

Your service is not forgotten.

As a young child I watched pictures of the Vietnam War on TV. One day some people came to our school who had POW/MIA bracelets and asked us to wear them to support the troops and to keep those men in our thoughts. I was 9 yrs old. We were asked not to remove our bracelet until "our soldier" returned home. My soldier was Maj Martin R Scott (3-15-66) and I promised to keep the bracelet on until he came home. I am now 56 years old and I have never taken off the bracelet....20 years ago while visiting the Wall in DC I had another bracelet made for my daughter (who was 10 at the time), she also continues to wear the bracelet as well. I now live in England and am a school teacher, people here ask me about the bracelet and I tell them the story behind it. Your service is not, and will never be forgotten. Nov. 11, 2013
