During the Reunion of September 21-24, 2000 at Fort Walton Beach, FL a memorial was dedicated to all the FACs that died in SEA.  The memorial is in the Air Park on Hurlburt Field, FL among the planes that the FACs flew.  The remarks made during the dedication and a list of names is available.  If anyone has a story about any individual who's name is on the memorial, if you send it to the page coordinator it will be linked to the name of the individual.  This will serve as a living memorial to the individuals and help explain the words on the Memorial - "All Gave Some, But Some Gave All."

OV-10 67-14626 was also dedicated at that service. A picture and some history of 626 can be found here
