From 1959 to 1975 2.6 million American Citizens went to a farway Country called Vietnam. To help fight for Freedom and Democracy. This is the story of 5 Men from 58,169 men and women who never returned alive.......

My Hero POW/MIA is MICHAEL BATT. He was born on May30,1947. He became a member of the Army while in Defiance,Ohio and attained the rank of SSGT(E6).

Michael Batt is listed as Missing in Action. You can find Michael honored on the Vietnam Memorial Wall on Panel 29W,Row50.

The Beech U21A was a low-wing, twin engine executive aircraft used primarily for liaison flights for staff-level personnel that served with the Pacific Air Forces in Vietnam. The US Army also used it as a personnel and light cargo transport before it was reassigned to Air America, the CIA airline in Southeast Asia.

Charles Barnes,co-pilot;David R.Smith,aircraft commander; picked up, on a cloudy day, on 16 March 1969, the following passengers SSG.MICHAEL BATT,Major Marvin L. Foster and PFC. Raymond Bode. The aircraft(U21A)resumed it's journey north toward HUE/PHU BAI where it was scheduled to land. During this portion of the mission, the aircraft was required to revert from visual to instrument flight rules because of the low cloud ceilings, poor visibility and rain showers in the area.

The aircraft was picked up by radio and radar; however contact was lost during the approach pattern. After loss of contact, all standard emergency radio frequencies were utilized, but radio contact with the aircraft could not be regained. DA NANG AIR/SEA rescue was also notified, but initial efforts were limited to a communications search because of the bad weather. The aircraft was never located. Based on a replotted flight plan, the indicated last known location for this aircraft was approximately one kilometer west TRUOI MOUTAIN,QUANG NAM DA NANG(formerly TUAN THIEN PROVINCE)Province,South Vietnam.

"The thundering Line of Battle stands,
And in the Night Death moans and sings
And Night shall fold him in soft wings;
But Day shall clasp him with strong Hands"

How is this nation going to be ready for the new century? If nobody wants to remember and learn from the past.

Somewhere in this nation a mother will go to bed tonight wondering where her son is...who disappeared 30years ago. Please don't forget Michael Batt and the entire Crew from the U21A.May they all rest in peace where ever they are.
