Not Forgotten

I have not forgotten you. I chair the Adoption Committee for The National League of Families of Prisoners of War and Missing in Action in Southeast Asia. We will always remember the 1,889 Americans still unaccounted for in Southeast Asia and the thousands of others that lost their lives. We will not stop our efforts until all of you are home where you belong.

We need to reach the next generation so that they will carry on when our generation is no longer able. To do so, we are attempting to locate photographs of all the missing. If you are reading this remembrance and have a photo and/or memory of this missing American that you would like to share for our project, please contact me at:

TO "CRACKER" JACK BRUNSON

JACK WAS A FEW CLASSES BEHIND ME IN FLIGHT SCHOOL. AS WAS THE CUSTOM, I USED TO "HAZE" HIM. I'D DROP JACK TO DO 50 PUSHUPS -HE'D DO 51.

I LOST TRACK OF JACK FOR SEVERAL MONTHS - THEN, WHEN I REPORTED TO DUTY AT THE 131ST AVIATION COMPANY (AERIAL SURVEILLANCE) IN HUE/PHU BAI, JACK WAS THERE.

WE FLEW ELECTRONIC SURVEILLANCE MISSIONS IN LAOS, CAMBODIA AND NORTH VIET NAM. (ALTHOUGH, OUR GOVERNMENT DENIED BEING IN THOSE COUTRIES!) ROUTE PACK 1 (HWY 1) PARROTS BEAK, AND THE STEEL TIGER. WE HAD THREE BASIC MISSIONS - SLAR (SIDE-LOOKING AIRBORNE RADAR), IR (INFRA-RED) AND VISUAL OR PHOTO RECON. THE LATTER WAS THE MOST DANGEROUS. WE FLEW THOSE MISSIONS ANYWHERE FROM 50-150 FEET OFF THE DECK.

JACK AND HIS WINGMATE IN ANOTHER OV-1A WERE TAKING TURNS MAKING LOW-LEVEL, HIGH SPEED RECON PASSES ON A TARGET JUST SOUTH OF TCHEPONE, LAOS, WHEN JACK WENT IN HE WAS HIT BY VICIOUS GROUNDFIRE. HIS MOHAWK AIRCRAFT FLIPPED INVERTED AND HIT THE GROUND AT 350-400 MILES PER HOUR. THE CREW IN THE OTHER AIRCRAFT SAW NO CHUTES, INDICATING JACK AND HIS RIGHT SEAT OBSERVER WERE UNABLE TO EJECT.

I SPOKE WITH JACK'S FATHER LAST DECEMBER - HE STILL MISSES JACK. SO, DO I.
