My name is Erin Miller, and I am a recent graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. For the last three years, I have been working on a book on Wisconsin's MIAs from the Vietnam War. The book features each of the 37 MIAs, their lives, their military service, and the circumstances that led to their disappearance, and is reliant on interviews with family, friends, and fellow servicemen.
One of the men featured in the book, Specialist Richard Hentz, served with the 138th Aviation Company in the ASA from October 1970 until his aircraft disappeared and he was declared MIA on March 4, 1971. Richard was a member of Left Jab. Several unit members contributed to Richard's chapter in the book.
The book, Wisconsin’s 37: The Lives of Those Missing in Action in the Vietnam War, will be released early June. All royalties from the book will be donated to the Wisconsin Veterans Museum and the Highground Memorial in Neillsville, WI.
