Erma Hynson at Gale Siow's grave site.

Erma Hynson sits by the grave site of her brother, Gale Siow, who in 1968, at the age of 27, was killed in action during a secret mission in Vietnam. It was 33 years before Naval airman Siow and eight fellow military crew were discovered and returned home. He was properly buried in Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia in 2003, but this was Hynson’s first visit.
