46 years and coming Home

Postby bayside » Mon May 06, 2013 9:37 pm

Marines, we were out on a operation when a CH46 went down does anybody remember the date?( Year 67)
We are bring home Merlin Rae Allen after 46 years to his home in Bayfield Wisconsin. U. S. and Vietnam recovery teams found his remains in February, Allen will be buried June 30th in the Apostle Islands next to his parents. To quote Jeff Savelkoul who served the crash, " That's part of THE Marine Soul"

According to the Vietnam Memorial information for L/Cpl. Allen, the helicopter he was on went down June 30, 1967...
Welcome home Marine - May you rest in peace!
