Karl Merritt Waldron Jr
Lieutenant Colonel, United States Air Force
February 28, 1920 to February 15, 1968
Karl M Waldron Jr is on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial,
panel 39E line 55.
My father flew fighter planes in WWII as wingman to
a man I came to know as my "Uncle Waldo", Karl Merritt Waldron Jr.
He couldn't resist the urge to fly once more so he joined up again
in 1967. Although he was 47 years of age, the Air Force assigned him to pilot
AC-47 gunships. He was KIA on 2.15.68. This is all I know.
I hope if Uncle Waldo's family reads this, they may contact me. Thank you.
