Major Robert Lapham Is Home At Last
The Department of Defense POW/Missing Personnel Office (DPMO) announced Thursday the remains of a US serviceman, missing from the Vietnam War, have been identified and returned to his family for burial with full military honors. He is Maj. Robert G. Lapham, US Air Force, of Marshall, MI.
He will be buried Friday in Arlington National Cemetery near Washington, DC.
On February 8, 1968, Lapham was flying the lead A-1G Skyraider in a flight of two in Quang Tri Province, Vietnam. The aircraft were alerted to join an airborne forward air controller to destroy enemy tanks that had overrun the Lang Vei Special Forces Camp."
But I would like to know who his parents were.
