Thanks for posting Chad. Could you fill us in on what information you know. His name. His rank. His company. His dates in country. Any of these would be some help.

Could you supply us with an email address?

No problem. I'll just duplicate this string in the Headquarters forum. With a little luck, eventually someone who remembers your dad will see it.
