Vietnamese Government opens more sites to POW/MIA investigators
The Vietnamese government is now allowing three new areas that were previously off-limits to American personnel. The sites that were opened are the Kontum province, where a soldier was lost in 1968; the Quang Binh province where a F-4C Phantom II jet crashed with two personnel in 1967; and the Quang Tri province where a F-4J Wild Weasel aircraft was lost and one man was rescued from the site while another was declared MIA.
The Vietnamese government is supporting the searches in these areas with personnel and information.
It's always good news when countries assist each other, hopefully there will be some more news as to the fate of the soldiers who were involved in these accidents. While 45 years may be a long time to wait, the phrase no man left behind comes to mind. No matter how long it takes, the U.S. will eventually find its soldiers.
