Yesterday, James Carlson posted on RU the passing of Col Fred Meiwald. This according to family members posting on Fred Meiwald's Face Book page. Col Meiwald passed away on August 8, 2012. His obituary can be viewed here.
Col Meiwald was the crew commander on duty with Robert Salas at Malmstrom's Oscar Flight during the 24 March 1967 alleged UFO incident. I posted about Col Meiwald's version of events here.
Regardless of how one interprets the UFO element of the Oscar story, Col Meiwald should be remembered for the service he gave to his country.
My prayers and thoughts go out to his family.
