Bruce Kane. I served as well as you in Vietnam in 1968. I knew you and your family from High School, and your sister and I were good friends. May you rest in peace, my brother.
If I should die in a combat zone,

From my Watchfires '99...
And last I told Bruce Kane, whose MIA bracelet has resided in my shadow box for more years then I can remember, that even though I never got to meet him, he will always be remembered.
From a fellow Marine,
Notes from The Virtual WallFour men of Marine Light Helicopter Squadron 367 went down when their UH-1E (BuNo 155339) was hit by enemy fire in the vicinity of the SVN/Laotian border northwest of the Rockpile:
Cpl Kane had jumped from the aircraft just prior to water impact and made it ashore. However, as Hill came to surface the first time, he saw Cpl Kane re-enter the water to assist the remaining crew members. Major Hill and LCpl Dean were rescued by a "Kingbee" H-34 piloted by Captain Dai Uy Ahn (VNAF 219 Squadron). Captain Ahn air taxied 100 yards in an attempt to recover of the bodies of the apparently dead crewmembers but was forced from the area by enemy small arms fire.
The HMM-367 SCARFACE web site has two pages on this incident, including photographs taken from an accompanying AH-1G COBRA which show 155339 going down in flames - see their "Janousek Down" and "Janousek/Kane" pages.
