Sgt. David Wandel, a 28th Air Refueling Squadron boom operator, poses in his olive drab service uniform in an undated 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. Wandel’s family spent several years searching for a memorial plaque dedicated to Wandel and his crew. (Courtesy Photo)
