My name is Alan Risse.  My father, William John Risse, was aboard PR-26. Unfortunately he wasn't one of the lucky ones to survive.  I was only two years old at the time and my brother was 3.  My brother and I have grown up knowing very, very little about our father and the events on Mar 16, 1970. My mother never really talked about it much.

I was just searching around the Internet when I decided to look for my father's name.  That eventually led me your web site. Any information on the events of that day, information on my father, or any information on survivors who may have known my father would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
