Final Mission of CAPT Winfield W. Sission

COL Harley B. Pyles was a Bird Dog Forward Air Controller assigned to the 20th Tactical Air Support Squadron at Da Nang. He and CAPT Winfield W. Sission (USMC) took off from Kham Duc Special Forces Camp in an O-1E (#56-2600) to lead a flight of helicopters carrying ARVN troops to a landing zone in enemy territory. Later, they controlled an air strike, made a Bomb Damage Assessment, and then started back to their base. They were operating above a low cloud base when they disappeared about 10 miles from Da Nang. CAPT Sisson was reported as a POW but never returned. Their mission was to orbit the 1st Shining Brass Recon Mission ran by Charles "Slate" Petry, Jim "Halo" Smith, and William "Willie" Card as they patrolled the Ho Chi Minh Trail. They were tasked with keeping a watch on the weather and alert fighter aircraft if the team got into trouble. The aircraft crashed in bad weather as they were returning to Da Nang. COL Pyles was promoted while missing and his remains were eventually returned. He was from Enon, Ohio and was 43 and married when he was declared dead on February 4, 1974.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear Major Winfield Wade Sisson, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, Sir

Curt Carter
