Civil Air Patrol never tracked the names of those members lost in the Vietnam War. As the son of a Vietnam War veteran, I felt this omission needed correction. If you would like the full-sized graphic please message me. It shrinks a bit here on CAPTalk.

The week I joined CAP, a friend gave me a gift to celebrate. It was a POW bracelet with Major Apodaca's name on it. I wore it until his repatriation. As the son of a Vietnam veteran, this is cool. Nice work.

I'm the proud son of an Army Vietnam vet AND a fellow CAP member.  CAP and the USCG Auxiliary should definitely make it a priority to remember its members who have fallen while serving in the armed forces and/or serving their communities.  CAP does have its share of members who are FD, EMS, LEOs, etc as well.  We should make sure that NONE of them are ever forgotten.

  Hats of to all of them, it's not easy to loose a service member specially a young one. To all Vietnam Vets I salute you and may rest in peace.
   I have lost Marines in Combat and it's not easy to live with that. Thank you Mr.CD for remembering the fallen.

USCG Auxiliary should definitely make it a priority to remember its members who have fallen while serving in the armed forces and/or serving their communities.

I know this since I tried to find it but the Auxiliary has no list of those members who died while serving in the Auxiliary in WWII. A USCG monograph mentions several members, serving as Auxies not Temporary Reservists (TRs), died on duty. Most of those were cold/weather related or heart attacks. Yet no list exists of who they were. The Aux has several memorials for its members who died on duty while on air missions but there are no memorials or even a list of names of those who died during boat ops. There are at least three, who all died in the same incident. So if the Aux cannot and will not track its members who died on duty, I doubt they would have much interest in tracking those who were members but died during activities that were not directly Aux related and under USCG orders.
