UNTIL THEY ARE FORGOTTEN
LET US NOT FORGET"
If still alive, some MIA's are now in their 70's. They do not have the luxury of time. They don't have much time left.
We have to demand the answers from the bureaucrats and keep standing on their necks (figuratively speaking) until they get the message, that they work for US and that we are serious about getting these long overdue responses....
Nearly 10,000 reports have been recieved relating to Americans in Southeast Asia.
DO YOUR PART...NOW...TIME IS RUNNING OUT FOR THESE PEOPLE...THAT SO PROUDLY SERVED THEIR COUNTRY!!!
Unit: Company A, 3rd Battalion, 12th Infantry, 4th Infantry Division
Date of Birth: 21February1944
Date Of Loss: 27March1969
OTHER PERSONNEL IN INCIDENT:
An attempt to re-enter the area that afternoon was unsuccessful.
On March 30, Company A attacked the enemy again, and was again forced to withdraw leaving people behind, including SP4 Clarence A. Latimer, who was a rifleman with the company and had been severly wounded during the attempt.
Two long range reconnaissance patrols (LRRP) were sent back into the area a week later to recover the bodies of the missing.
Sweeps were made of the area for two days, but no remains were found. Clarence A. Latimer was declared MISSING IN ACTION.
On 3March1973, Gail Kerns was released by the North Vietnamese. He had been held in South Vietnam, and moved to Hanoi prior to his release. No word had ever gotten out to the U.S. that Gail had been captured.
Evidence of secondary prison systems has surfaced since the latter years of the war. It is suspected, as reports mount that hundreds of Americans are still alive today, that prisoners within a second system were kept completely seperate from the others.
This would allow large number of POWs to be held without knowledge of other prisoners.
