Vietnam Veteran-Air Force Pilot
F4 Hero
Major William R. Andrews was a pilot assigned to the 433rd Tactical Fighter Squadron at Ubon Airfield, Thailand. On October 5, 1966, he was assigned a strike mission over North Vietnam in his F4C Phantom fighter/bomber. Andrews flew the number three aircraft in a flight of four. Following the mission, the flight was directed to fly escort for two B-66's. A MiG alert was issued after which it was noticed that the number three aircraft (Andrews) was not in the formation. No radio contact was received from the missing aircraft crew, but a short time later an emergency radio beeper signal was heard. Both crewmen ejected safely from their aircraft and reached the ground without injury. Radio contact was subsequently made with Andrews, but due to heavy ground fire, he was not recovered. He reported that he was uninjured, but that North Vietnamese forces were approaching his position. The two went down in Nghia Lo Province about 40 miles east-northeast of the city of Na San. The second crewman was subsequently rescued. Andrews later reported that he was wounded and losing consciousness. He was classified as Prisoner of War and was expected to return in the prisoner release in 1973. Andrews did not return in 1973, and the Vietnamese deny knowledge of his fate.

To Honor a POW who did not make it back alive
I am so glad to see that his body was recovered for his family. It's so sad, the not knowing! I lost my cousin, WIA on July, 11, l967, died July 18, 1967 on the Delta. The vietnam people did not treat our men well. William went to a good place, at rest. Bless him!
