What About The War

What about the war
Men are dying every day
Why should there be war
Peace is the only way

What about the war
No man has the right
To say we go to war
So why must we fight

What about the war
Men aren't just being shot
Drugs are killing scores
Yeah, needles, pills and pot

What about the war
Will war ever stop
Only one man knows for sure
God's the one on top.

I have been wearing his MIA bracelet off and on since 1992. I will put it away for a time, or just take it off and forget where I put it. It always shows up some time later. I am wearing it now.

Notes from The Virtual Wall

At 0300 on 13 March 1966, an AC-47D gunship of the 4th Air Commando Squadron departed Danang Air Base for a mission over Quang Nam Province near the Laotian border. Shortly after departure, radio contact with the aircraft was lost. The aircraft did not recover at a friendly base ... it had simply disappeared into the night, together with its seven crewmen:
  • Captain Howard W. Henninger, pilot;
  • Captain Robert E. Pasekoff, co-pilot;
  • Captain Gerald E. Olson, navigator;
  • Sergeant Dean A. Duvall, aerial gunner;
  • Staff Sergeant Gene E. Davis, flight mechanic;
  • Staff Sergeant Marshall I. Pauley, aerial gunner; and
  • Tech Sergeant Edwin E. Morgan, loadmaster.
Search and rescue operations began immediately but were without success - no trace of the aircraft or its crew was found. The seven men were classed as Missing in Action. As the years passed without any information regarding their fate, the Secretary of the Air Force approved Presumptive Findings of Death - Morgan's on 09 Jan 1978. Their remains have not been repatriated.
