I have worn Alan's MIA bracelet for 10 years. It always reminds me how lucky we all are to live in this great country. Men like Alan are heros and will never be forgotten.

A Note from The Virtual Wall

Recon Team MOCASSIN was inserted into Laos on 21 Sep 1969 in order to conduct surveillance operations against North Vietnamese forces moving down the Ho Chi Minh Trail. Shortly after insertion the team, which consisted of two US and two ARVN soldiers, was engaged by an NVA security force. SP5 Cecil and one of the ARVN troops were killed by gunshot and the US team leader was wounded. The two survivors were able to evade the NVA and were extracted after sundown, but it was not possible to recover the bodies of the two men lost.

SP5 Cecil's remains have not been recovered.
