Honored

When I flew on the AWACS in Tinker in the USAF, they handed out metal bracelets with MIA/KIA service members of past for us to wear. I choose SSG Lawrence Woods as we had the same last name... while we are not related that I know of I am honored to wear this bracelet bearing his name every patriotic holiday when I don my own dog tags. Rest easy, SSG Woods, and I hope to shake your hand or perhaps even a hug when I make it to heaven someday.

Final Mission of SSGT Lawrence Woods

Final Mission of SSGT Lawrence Woods
On October 24, 1964, Special Forces SSGT Lawrence Woods was a passenger on a Fairchild C-123 "Provider" which departed Na Trang on an aerial resupply mission near the border of South Vietnam and Cambodia. The aircraft was hit by enemy fire and crashed. The aircraft itself was completely destroyed by fire except for the tail section. No parachutes were seen to leave the aircraft as it crashed. Subsequent searches of the crash site resulted in the recovery or accounting of seven individuals onboard the aircraft, but Woods was not found. Lawrence Woods was listed among the missing because his remains were never found. However, He was accounted for on 27 September 2013, and was buried with full military honors in early 2014.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SSGT Lawrence Woods, 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, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter
