I never knew Daniel Singleton. I have worn his POW/MIA Bracelet since I adopted him in 2000. My wish is to give this bracelet to him some day.
NEVER FORGOTTEN AND ALWAYS IN MY THOUGHTS
From one who wears his MIA bracelet,
A Note from The Virtual WallOn the night of 25/26 Jan 1969, Major Russel K. Utley, pilot, and 1st Lt Daniel E. Singleton, weapons systems operator, departed Korat RTAFB in F-4E tail number 67-0286 on a night interdiction mission along the Ho Chi Minh Trail. Their aircraft went down while attacking a target near Ban Kate. Although no parachutes were seen and search and rescue efforts failed to gain contact with either crewman, it was possible that one or both escaped the aircraft and were captured. They were classed as Missing in Action.
Nothing further was learned of the two men, and eventually the Secretary of the Air Force approved Presumptive Findings of Death for them on Tuesday, 05/09/1978. Both were promoted while MIA, Singleton to Major.
