I am the sister of John Macy Birch. I was 12 years old when John went to Vietnam. John would come home on the weekends and bring me one of those white caps they wear and take me for a ride in his car. The last time I saw him, he picked me up as usual and explained to me that he was going away and that he would't see me for a while but he would be back. He never returned. I still miss him.

 My name is Debra Loth you can contact me through my e-mail:  debraloth (AT symbol)

John also has another sister - her name is Barbara Dunmore.

I served with VQ-1 from 1967 to 1970.  I flew with Crew 2 in 1968 and 1969 as RADAR and ECM operator.  PR26 was our primary ride.

Two photos of ATN3 John Birch taken, I believe, during the Winter of 1969 January or Feburary. His girl friend is directly in front of him, the other two were friends.
