Colonel Lawrence William Whitford

My dad is my hero. My mom used to tell me I am exactly like him... Strong-willed, determined, loyal, and stubborn.

Dad flew with an elite volunteer group of pilots known as Misty Facs, and I’m certain those attributes I mentioned helped guide him in his duties as a pilot.

It will be 51 years this coming November that dad and his copilot, Patrick Carroll, were shot down over Laos. I am hoping we can bring both of these brave men home in my lifetime.
