Caribou Association

The Missing Man


This page is dedicated to the Caribou people who have "slipped the surly bonds of Earth" for the last time.  Note: This is not an all-inclusive listing; these are the more recent departures for which we have obituary information.  Each name below is a link to that information.


Grave Sites

In the course of his reasearch, Pat Hanavan has located the grave sites of a number of our missing brothers.  As part of the By-Laws of the Association “…through communication and fellowship to remember their service to the United States of America and to honor the memory of those who were killed in such service during the war in Vietnam,” the Board of Directors encourages its members to visit the graves of those of us who have taken their last flight west into the setting sun.  To facilitate this, the list of known grave locations is provided by this link: Caribou/obit/C-7A_Where_Buried.pdf with entries arranged by state and city. If there is a grave near you, please visit it at least once year and leave a sign that our comrade is not forgotten. A small stone on the marker (a military tradition), flowers, etc. will show that he is remembered.
