    You have some good details there to start with. Also served in 1965-66, then again in 69.

    Could the confusion be due to doing more than one tour? Just a thought.

    Do you have any inclination about where you were shot down? Take a look at a map of Vietnam and see if any of the provinces catches your eye.

    And also, do you have any idea about where in America you were from?

    That information will help greatly with verification. Also if you have any inclination about how you looked/a name that is also another starting point.

    I have a strong feeling that I was shot down during a bombing run over North Vietnam. Especially with being stationed in Da Nang and so close to the North/South border. I may have been part of a group of fighters but all I can remember is being in my own. Also, I had a relatively good experience in Vietnam, rarely ever running missions and not being allowed to leave the base because I was required to be ready to go at any time so I very well may have served a couple tours. I feel that I was from the East Coast and the southern East coast at that (D.C., Virginia, Georgia, the Carolinas, Florida). As far as what I looked like, I only remember a quick glimpse in the mirror. I was a really lanky kid, tall and skinny, brown hair or perhaps dirty blonde (?), Not sure about my eye color but idk if it'd matter with most all photos taken back then being in black and white

    Hey if I get a spare moment today I’ll see what I can find out for you. Will PM you if anything comes of interest. I know the frustration of trying to find the right person all too well (am myself looking for someone related).

    I know quite a bit too about the POW/MIA issue. Do you feel his body was recovered ? Or that there may have been a possibility of survival? Some thoughts. Some are listed as MIA and body not recovered due to the nature of incidents.

    I'm pretty sure I died on impact but I may still be listed as MIA because I went down on a mission which I feel was over North Vietnam. Maybe it was just too dangerous and they were never able to recover me alive or dead

    Those were my thoughts too. That would also narrow down your search significantly.

    I look at traumatic experiences especially war as having a purpose. I see many here naturally becoming quite disturbed remembering. The emotional imprint keeps you from seeing the reasons behind that moment. Often it has nothing to do with you. I have many memories of myself doing unspeakable things but the purpose was for another soul. I do not come back immediately, there were 14 years between my confederate veteran's natural old age death and birth as the person who died in Vietnam. There were 12 years between his death in battle and my birth. In those periods of time, I work with others to prepare for new experiences. One person I know today, I remember killing his parents in front of him as a Norse raider in a raid on his town. I was about to kill him but felt sorry so took him as a slave to protect him from the others and raised him. I also remember before that he asked me to do this so he could live self sufficiently, something he could not accomplish so long as he had family and friends he could rely on. In many lives, he had tried and failed. This killing took all that from him. I'm sure although I have no memory his parents had agreed to this experience for him too.

    My Vietnam death was for a purpose in that life, someone needed to lose an idealized parent to help them with building self esteem and value, and had major positive repercussions for this one.

    Am glad you’ve found ways to look past and deal with your memories.
    For many of us, it’s as real as the day is happened on bad days and lives with us, shaping our lives from birth pretty much.

    Trauma shouldn’t be downplayed nor trivialised in my opinion.
