Vietnam-era KIA Interred at Academy

The US Air Force Academy on Thursday honored the memory of Maj. Burke Morgan, a 1961 graduate who had been declared killed in action during the Vietnam War but whose remains were not discovered for some 38 years, when it interred his remains next to his wife Mary in the USAFA Cemetery. Morgan was a navigator on an A-25A that went missing in August 1967 over Laos. The Air Force declared Morgan and the pilot, Maj. John Kerr, KIA four years later, but Morgan’s remains were not recovered until February 2005 and positively identified in October 2005.
