God Bless YOU.. Long ago I read The Green Berets. I didn't know at the time that one of the characters was mirrored after you. Sometimes I wish that I wore the GREEN BERET.
SEMPER FI, MY FRIEND.

On the date of his loss, 10 October 1965, Captain Thorne was a member of MACV Special Detachment 5891 and a passenger in a South Vietnamese H-34 Choctaw helicopter that crashed while on a combat operation near Kham Duc, South Vietnam. While in MIA status, the U.S. Army promoted him to the rank of Major with his contemporaries. The Army later officially declared him "deceased" and then closed his active military file.
