Visitor Comments: There are so many still missing from all conflicts and I firmly believe we must continue to recover those which we are able so that those many families may have closure. Losing a loved one is difficult enough without having to wonder all these years what became of that person.

Visitor Comments: I would like to express my deepest sympathies to your family for your courageous act of heroism ... I was in the Air Force during the Vietnam era although never deployed to Vietnam ... I can only imagine the difficulty it was for so many not to know the patriotic duty you were performing for the nation along with your fellow airman ... it makes me happy to at least have your recognition be shown to all ...
may your family be at peace and may your efforts never be forgotten !!

Visitor Comments: Cory, Congratulations, I wish I could be there. I think about the work we did to get this ball rolling and I do not think in the six years I worked for Earl I did anything more important. Your dad was a great man. I am very happy this day has finally come.

Visitor Comments: Just read on the net that Chief Master Sgt Dick Etchberger was awarded the Medal of Honor 42 years after the fact for actions taken at Lima Site 85. Unfortunately his wife passed away in 94, however his sons were able to receive the Medal of Honor for their father. I hope this brings some peace to the familys after all these years. As a veteran of Vietnam I salute Chief Master Sgt Etchberger for his ultimate sacrifice.

Visitor Comments: Thanks for taking the time to create and maintain this site. So much of what we did in that war has never been told and as time passes and those of us who were there also pass that knowledge will be forever lost. Projects like this help to complete the history of what was heroic and great about the effort. I'm confident that someday our sacrifice as a nation will be better known and the impact we had upon the outcome of the Cold War will be better understood.

Visitor Comments: Thank you for all of your hard work documenting this mission after it was declassified. My father SMSGT Thomas Groomes (USAF ret)was a SSGT assigned to this mission. This site is a sobering reminder of the dangerous missions our military is asked to do--often without acknowledging these missions ever take place to the public at large.

Their sacrifice is appreciated by all of us who serve our country today. We will never forget!

Major Todd "Disney" Groomes
