LT COL GLENN RAYMOND MORRISON JR.
Captain Glenn Raymond Morrison Jr., who joined the U.S. Air
Force from Iowa, was a member of 614th Tactical Fighter
Squadron. On October 26, 1966, he was the pilot of a single-seat
F-100 Super Sabre (tail number 3167) that departed Phan Rang Air
Base as the number three aircraft in a three-plane combat
mission targeting enemy positions in Tay Ninh Province, South
Vietnam. After bombing the target, the flight was instructed to
pick up more ordnance and perform another attack on the same
area. As they carried out the second attack, the flight leader
twice radioed Capt Morrison to report his position, but received
no response. The flight leader then noticed a crash site south
of the target, in the vicinity of (GC) XT 430 575. An
investigation of the crash site determined that the aircraft had
crashed into tall trees there and disintegrated on impact. A
more extensive search could not be conducted due to enemy
presence in the area, and Capt Morrison remains unaccounted for.
Following the incident, the Air Force promoted Capt Morrison to
the rank of Lieutenant Colonel (Lt Col). Today, Lieutenant
Colonel Morrison is memorialized on the Courts of the Missing at
the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific.
