  This Web SIte is dedicated to those 12 who gave all for their country
when on January 12, 1962 their aircraft disappeared over Greenland.

Only Fate kept 1st Class Petty Officer, Don Latimer from being on
board as he had been reassigned just a few days before the flight.

Don was interviewed in August of 2004 and their story is told in the article below.
