Subject: Glenn L. Myers Date: Thu, 14 Dec 2000
In reading the bio of Glenn Myers,... I found a couple of errors relating to his capture date and unit of assignment. I was in pilot training at Moody AFB with him, Class 66G, and we were together through first assignment in RF-4C's and then to Tan Son Nhut AB, RVN.
The bio mentions -- "He was commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant in January 1965 and in 1966 finished pilot training and photo reconnaissance crew training. He was thereafter a member of the 22nd Tactical Reconnaissance Squadron until June 1967 when he was captured."
The bio itself shows his shootdown date as Aug 9, 67, which negates the June 1967 date mentioned above, which was really the date he shipped over to Vietnam... also, the 22nd Tactical Reconnaissance Squadron was our unit at Mountain Home AFB before we were assigned to Tan Son Nhut. There we were assigned to the 16th Tactical Reconnaissance Squadron; where he was when shot down...
Also, "Other Personnel in Incident:" .. I'm quite sure his front seater was Lauren Robert Lengyel ... they were usually crewed together and the shootdown date and coordinates match.
I as so glad I discovered this site.... I can't wait to look up some more friends.. Thanks to all those who are/were involved in maintaining this important record!!
Cheers, Jack O. Foley, Colonel, USAF, Ret.

Statement by Secretary of Defense Ash Carter on the Nomination of Lieutenant General Joseph Lengyel as Chief of the National Guard Bureau
I want to congratulate Lieutenant General Joseph Lengyel on his nomination as chief of the National Guard Bureau, and, if approved by Congress, on his promotion to general.
Over the course of more than three decades in the United States Air Force, whether in the cockpit of an F-16 or serving as a defense attaché overseas, Lt. Gen Lengyel has demonstrated strong and steady leadership. During his most recent role as vice chief of the National Guard Bureau, he has helped to ensure our 470,000 Army and Air National Guard personnel are accessible, capable and ready to protect the homeland and provide combat resources to the Army and Air Force.
I am supremely confident that Lt. Gen Lengyel will bring the same visionary leadership and sound counsel that Gen. Frank Grass has brought to the position for nearly four years. I want to thank Gen. Grass for his distinguished service as a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and as the department’s official channel of communication to the governors and state adjutants general.
On so many occasions over the past 15 years, the men and women of the National Guard have gone above and beyond to meet their country’s call, performing selfless service both at home and abroad. Under both General Grass and Lt. Gen Lengyel’s direction, the men and women of our Army and Air National Guard have been able to count on having confident leadership and strong advocates at the highest levels of the department.
Air Force Lt. Gen. Joseph Lengyel was
installed last week
as commander of the National Guard. ...
