    On January 16, 1968, an EF-10B Skynight (bureau number 125831, call sign “Pigment 662”) carrying two crew members was returning to Da Nang Air Base from a combat support mission over North Vietnam. When the aircraft was fifteen miles northwest of the airfield, it disappeared for unknown reasons. The last communication from the crew indicated they were over the coast of South Vietnam and that Da Nang Airfield was within sight. They said they were switching from radar control to tower control but made no further contract. An extensive search for the missing Skyknight was conducted, but no sign of the crew or the aircraft was ever found.First Lieutenant Paul Stuart Gee, who joined the U.S. Marine Corps from Wisconsin, service with the Marine Composite Reconnaissance Squadron 1, Marine Air Group 11, Marine Air Wing. He was the airborne electronic countermeasures officer aboard the skyknight when it disappeared, and his remains were not recovered. After the incident, the Marine Corps promoted 1st Lt Gee to the rank of Captain. Today, Captain Gee is memorialized on the Courts of the Missing at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. His name is also inscribed along with all his fallen comrades on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington, DC.Based on all information available, DPAA assessed the individual’s case to be in the analytical category of Active Pursuit.

    Captain Gee’s family are known to have lived in Manitowish Waters, WI, but our knowledge of them is scant. If anyone has further knowledge of the family, please consider contacting the Foundation through the WVMFF website.
