 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
On 12 February 1970 an F-4B (BuNo 151454) of Marine Fighter Attack Squadron 122, based at Chu Lai, failed to return from a mission near Quang Tri.  The MAG-13 Command Chronology for February 1970 contains the following entry: "On the 12th of February, VMFA-122 was flying a section TPQ with Quang Tri ASRAT.  When the second aircraft attempted to get into position, it descended into an overcast and contact was lost.  The pilot and his radar intercept officer have been declared MIA."  Oddly, the pilot's casualty record is coded as an operational accident, while the radar intercept officer's record is coded as a combat loss.  In any case, the bodies of the two crewmen were not recovered: * 1st Lt Michael H. Breeding, pilot * 1st Lt Robert S. Bradshaw, radar intercept officer
