Subject: What is being Done To bring them Home?
what is being done to determine the fate of CAPT. Gerald Everett Olson USASF, who was last
heard from about 10 miles from the border of Laos in Quang Nam Province. No remains were
ever found although there was an intensive search of the area later on, and no one saw him

surviving under harsh conditions. Please advise me of any action that is being taken by
you or any other elected appointed official to determine his fate.
In the event there is nothing being done, please explain why not, and tell me how you

suffered enough? And what of the rest of crew?
