Mary and Maj. Robert F. Woods

This portrait of Mary and Maj. Robert F. Woods was taken just months before Major Woods left for Vietnam in 1967. On Nov. 30, 2007, the Air Force announced that Major Woods, along with co-pilot Capt. Johnnie C. Cornelius, were identified and their remains returned to the United States from Vietnam. On June 26, 1968, Major Woods and Captain Cornelius were flying a visual reconaissance mission over Quang Binh Province, Vietnam, when their O-2A Skymaster aircraft crashed in a remote mountainous area. Major Woods was buried with full military honors April 9, 2008, at Arlington National Cemetery nearly 40 years after he disappeared in the crash. (Photo courtesy of the Woods family)
