Have Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command resume excavation of Colonel John O'Grady's POW/MIA remains.

Bring this Hero Home!

Have Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command resume excavation of Colonel John F. O'Grady  USAF  POW/MIA  remains.

In 1967 Col. O'Grady was flying his F-105D over Vietnam when his plane was shot down & he parachuted into enemy territory.  He was MIA & for 40 years his wife & 7 children didn't receive any more information about what happened to him.

In May of 2012 the government finally learned, that O'Grady had been captured and later died.  They were also informed of exactly where he was buried.  JPAC went to the site and began excavation of O'Grady's burial site.. They had barely started when they suspended the excavation citing concerns for a family members safety.

It has been 17 months and they have never gone back. It is unconscionable to leave a hero in an unmarked grave 8,000 miles away
