Although we did not have a body he actually has one at East Lawn Palms in Tuscon, Arizona. I got to go back there on Memorial Day 2006 after 39 years, it was a sad but a wonderful experience, I will forever miss him.

Seaman Bois Claire was a member of Heavy Photographic Squadron 62, U.S. Navy.

On August 25, 1967, he was a crewmwn of a Douglas Skywarrior Attack Aircraft (RA-3B) over North Vietnam when radio contact was lost.

Electronic and visual searches were unable to locate any sign of the aircraft or its crew either in the off-shore water, along the coastline or over land. The reconnaissance aircraft simply vanished without a trace.

On 30 August, five days after the formal search operation began, it was terminated.

While the fate of Edward Jacobs, James Zavocky and Ronald Bois Claire appears to be in little doubt since the US Navy believes they disappeared over water.

His remains were not recovered.
