Maj. Dale Richardson Laid to Rest

9-2 Richardson

Maj. Dale Wayne Richardson, a Vietnam veteran who had been listed as Missing in Action since 1970, was laid to rest Aug. 29 in Mountain View. His remains were identified months ago after being discovered at the site where the helicopter in which he was a passenger went down in Cambodia. A procession including the hearse and escorts arrived in Mountain View Aug. 27, met by hundreds of residents who lined the roadsides to pay tribute.

His obituary and story appears in the Aug. 19 issue, and coverage of the procession in the Aug. 26 issue.
