    Very good article on Navy Lt (jg) Deiter Dengler.

    Only a couple of corrections. Lt Duane Martin was an Air Force Rescue Pilot, his remains have never been recovered.

    Lt Dengler escaped from the Lation POW Camp of Hoi Het.

    He was rescued on 20 July 1966, and brought back to the large Naval Facility, known as Marble Martin.

    I was the radio operator who received the initial call when Lt Dengler was first spotted. I got off at noon, but found out later that evening, that he had escaped from Laos.

    I never found out who he was, until 1997, when I read about his documentary "Little Deiter needs to Fly"

    I've also read his book "Escape from Laos", and seen the movie "Rescue Dawn".

    I did talk to him via phone in 1997.

    Eventually, I will to pay my respects to Lt Dengler, and also Captain Duane Martin.

    I do have a short article I would like to submit.
