Pilot Missing In Vietnam War Accounted For The Defense POW / MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) announced that the remains of United States Air Force Col. Martin R. Scott, missing from the Vietnam War, has now been accounted for. On March 15, 1966, Scott was a member of Headquarters, 8th Tactical Fighter Wing, as the aircraft commander and wingman of a two-seater F-4C aircraft in a flight of two on an armed reconnaissance mission over northern Vietnam. The lead aircraft spotted two vehicles as the flight approached the target area and the pilot of Scott’s aircraft responded that he was going to strafe the trucks. The flight leader observed an explosion in the area of the target and immediately attempted to contact Scott’s aircraft. No parachutes or emergency signals were seen, and all attempts to contact Scott and his pilot were unsuccessful. An organized search was not possible due to hostilities in the area. Scott was subsequently declared missing in action. Interment services are pending; a formal notification will be released 7-10 days prior to scheduled funeral services. Scott's name is recorded on the Walls of the Missing at an American Battle Monuments Commission site along with the others who are missing from the Vietnam War. A rosette will be placed next to his name to indicate he has been accounted for. Scott is listed on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Panel 6E, line 12. Thank you for your service, sir. May you continue to rest in peace. To the 1,604 still unaccounted for from the Vietnam War, You Are Not Forgotten.
