Air Force Academy Master Sgt. Greg Meinert will return to Vietnam for the third time this week on a mission to bring some of his fellow airmen home.
An expert in flight crew gear, Meinert will be working with a team of Americans at suspected crash sites in a bid to find some of the 568 Air Force airmen who remain missing 34 years after the war in Vietnam ended.
"I have many friends who served in Vietnam.
Many that died there, many that died after they came home from Agent Orange. I pray each day for our POW’s and MIA’s that they will be brought home! You are NOT forgotten! As long as I breathe I will be thinking and praying for you."
