WAVERLY, Iowa- It's taken a long time, but an Iowa serviceman who died in Vietnam will finally be buried with
full military honors. Donald McGrane, of Waverly, was a Navy Aviation Anti-submarine technician on a
helicopter flying a search and rescue mission when enemy fire shot it down in July, 1967. McGrane and three
crew members died in the crash. Since then searchers found their remains, but it took years to identify them all.
Now all four will be buried together April 2nd, at Arlington National Cemetery.
This is probably the best search list
ever compiled about Vietnam.

It would take months to look at everything this site offers.
