Lieutenant Junior Grade Jerry Franks Hogan entered the U.S. Navy from Alabama and was a member of Attack Squadron 112, embarked aboard the USS Kitty Hawk (CVA 63). On January 21, 1967, he was the pilot of a single-seat A-4C Skyhawk (bureau number 145144, call sign "Montana 415") that was in a flight of two aircraft that launched from the Kitty Hawk for a nighttime armed reconnaissance mission along the Song Yen River, North Vietnam. During the mission, the flight leader observed a flash and fire glow coming from an area where this Skyhawk had dropped its bombs, in the vicinity of (GC) 48Q WG 856 691. The flight leader attempted radio contact with LTJG Hogan but could not reach him. He observed no parachutes and detected no rescue beepers following the incident. Search efforts failed to locate a crash site, and LTJG Hogan remains unaccounted for. After the incident, the U.S. Navy promoted LTJG Hogan to the rank of Lieutenant Commander (LCDR). Today, Lieutenant Commander Hogan is memorialized on the Courts of the Missing at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific.
