U.S. pilot found 44 yrs later in Vietnam

4 posts in this topic

A Canadian documentarian says in a new film that an elderly man he found living in a remote Vietnamese village is former U.S. Army Green Beret Sgt. John Hartley Robertson, who was presumed dead 44 years ago. According to The Independent, filmmaker Michael Jorgensen claims that the man found in a village in South Vietnam can’t remember the English language or the names of his wife and children, but that he is the U.S. veteran whose helicopter was shot down in 1968.

Glad the Vietnamese let him go. Bet that family was surprised or shocked he was still alive.

Oh Thank You for posting this story!

Our government said that their were NO Vietnam POWs left there after 1973.

B******!

I know someone, whose best friend is a forensic archeologist, and she actually went to Vietnam to identify remains of POWs who had been left there. It is AWFUL what our government did to these guys. They left them to die, and the families are told that they are dead, when they're NOT.

A great story.

But not true. From the link itself,

UPDATE: The man claiming to be John Hartley Robertson has been exposed as a fraud. According to the Independent, the impostor’s story was “shattered” Wednesday, when a 2009 memo surfaced from the Defense Prisoner of War Missing Personnel Office saying “that the found man was in fact a fraudster who the US government performed DNA tests on 20 years ago and whose story had been fully debunked as an attempt to exploit Vietnam’s Missing in Action and Prisoner of War groups and claim military back-pay.”
