From a news report:
“Twenty-six U.S. Marine Corps prisoners of war were repatriated. The Marine Corps listed eight Marines as dead while captured and forty-seven were listed as missing as action in Vietnam. As late as 1991, the remains of Staff Sergeant Robert L. Greer and Staff Sergeant Fred T. Shreckengost were returned and interred in Arlington National Cemetery.”
Killed-in-action on June 20, 1964.
Michael Robert Patterson was born in Arlington and is the son of a former officer of the US Army. So it was no wonder that sooner or later his interests drew him to American history and especially to American military history. Many of his articles can be found on renowned portals like the New York Times, Washingtonpost or Wikipedia.
