Edwin R. Thompson

My name is Donna. I¹m sitting here with my ex-husband Edwin R. Thompson, at the VA hospital in Omaha, NE. He is very sick. Although he has many short term memory issues, he remembers the horrifying night of December 24th, 1970.

I never understood the scope of the pain he suffered until 21 yeas after this happened. Christmas celebrations were always so hard for him. He just mentioned to us yesterday that he had the list of the young men that were lost that day. I remember seeing it, it was a memorial print out.

Thanks to you and others on this website I¹ve found the names of those we lost. I want to share with him the names once I feel he is up for it.
