UPDATED LINK - USAFA MEMORIAL WALL (Capt. Bunker)

Since the entry on this VVMF website for Captain Bunker on 5 March 2019, the U.S. Air Force Academy Library updated the link/URL to access additional information for those USAFA graduates who died or are MIA in Southeast Asia during the Vietnam War and whose names are on the Academy's Memorial Wall. The link/URL for ALL graduates is:
http://memwall.usafalibrary.com/#memwallhomepage

Then search, alphabetically, for the name of Park Bunker, USAFA Class of 1963, to learn more information about this Vietnam War MIA.

Remembered on what would've been Capt. Bunker's 80th birthday - 10 December 2020.
