Lora Carson still has the last letter Lt. John Douglas Hale wrote her before he was lost in Vietnam.
The Brandenburg man’s letters were usually brief and down-to-earth.
Carson, of Brandenburg, dated the man before he was deployed, and she still has the journal entries she wrote when he left and when word came that the helicopter he was on was shot down March 8, 1971.
A newly formed group called POW/MIA Flag Guard is working to recognize Hale and other area veterans who were lost or presumed dead but were never able to be returned to their families.
