PILOT HONORS HIS FATHER

DM 03242016 1113

A current USA Today article describes how Roy Wright, an Air Force Major, left Dallas, Texas, for Vietnam fifty-two years ago. On the day he left, his five-year-old son Bryan went to Dallas Love Field to see his father off. Roy was later shot down while attacking a target on the Ho Chi Minh trail in Laos, on May 19, 1967. He was leading a flight of two aircraft, and no parachute was observed prior to the crash, or as it crashed and burst into flames. Even though search and rescue efforts were initiated and organized, an actual search could not be conducted due to the intensity of hostile ground fire in the area.

He grew up in California, dropped out of school when he was sixteen, and supported himself with illegal activities until he was twenty-three years old. At that time, he killed a man he suspected of sleeping with his wife. Arrowood was sentenced to life in prison without parole in 1995, and he admitted that he “deserved every bit of my sentence.”
