Looking for Downed Pilot
The ACA received a call from someone who was looking for a fellow service member from the 602nd SOS who flew during the Vietnam War. They thought their friend was a Captain and that he crashed. It is not a lot to go on, but Melissa at ACA headquarters found the following website and it has a lot of information for just such a question. The Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency is a fantastic resource to help in locating POW/MIAs https://dpaa-mil.sites.crmforce.mil/
Melissa was able to provide the caller with the following information: On March 1, 1969, Captain Campbell piloted an A-1J Skyraider, and for unknown reasons, his aircraft crashed in Laos. The Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency identified Captain Campbell’s remains in May 2010.
Now ACA members who are current on their dues and have an email on file with us can update their membership profile, view the members only photo gallery, search the member directory, and read the air commando adventures
