Sgt. David Wandel, a 28th Air Refueling Squadron boom operator, stands alongside his family in an undated holiday photo. In December 1975, Wandel and three of his fellow crewmembers – Capt. Martin E. Graham Jr., Capt. Joseph M. Furda and 1st Lt. Karwin M. Plucker – passed away in a plane crash just south of Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska. There was a memorial dedicated to the Ellsworth based crew in June 1976. (Courtesy Photo)
