In reply to: Jeff Northridge 's message, "Have You Checked the Morning Reports?" on Sat, July 09 2005, 11:51:37

Several years ago, we submitted FOIAs to NPRC for Morning reports including days before and after 9/28/68, for both 1/77th and 1/5 Cav. The only morning reports given were two...from B 1/77 artillery...with a 9/30/68 listing Carl as MIA, "remarks unknown" and a 10/02/68 MR listing him as "Dead - diagnosis unknown." When we called to ask for the reports not included, we were told "you don't need those." When a government official tried to obtain further information on our behalf some time later, he ran into the same stonewalling, whether by incompetence or intention. As he stated so correctly, they (NPRC) certainly "aren't known for their people skills." The coordinate varies, but is close, however consistently inconsistent throughout the provided reports in that it repeatedly lists him crashing on a UH-1D at YD 345342 and a UH-1H at YD 344341 [this last YD on the Ft. Rucker report also]. Interesting that the 1/77 Duty Log appears to show 1/77 providing artillery support to B 1/5 Cav in that same day's time frame...at a coordinate YD 260***..don't have the exact YD in front of me now, but in that coordinate area.

The remains of Evans are an even more impossible match than those we have. We have his IDPF file and I'm sure his family would have also been outraged by the sloppy incompetence in his DaNang Mortuary report also. There are, however, two USN Navy men still listed as MIA, known to have died from burns on 9/28/68, in a boat explosion in port in DaNang, David Halpin and David Dixon. From online reports, it looks like they recovered the third body on the boat that burned, but not those two. If they had been recovered, they would have gone to the same mortuary, same day, same time frame. We are in the process of persistently requesting/ongoing that CILHI & AFDIL test the remains we have against the mtDNA reference samples of the Halpin and Dixon families. I can't reiterate enough...we KNOW we do not have Carl Ussery's remains in the grave and have known so since shortly before it was disinterred..although we had believed that his remains were in that grave for 27 years.
