Swift Boat Veteran of Vietnam remains finally laid to rest with full military honors.

Surrounded by fellow Swift Boat Veterans, other veterans, family and friends, a long awaited closure to the family of Jack and Bessie Young, mother and step-father of BM2 Anthony Chandler, KIA on board PCF-19, June 16th,1968.
Thirty-three years after his reported death, a bone fragment found on the wreck of PCF-19 was returned to his family and buried with full military honors. The Navy believed that his body was blown clear of the boat and lost at sea until a fisherman in 1994 found this bone in the boat lying in 14 fathoms of water.
A book by this author reveals previously unrevealed details of this tragic event and how his body was indeed recovered in 1968 and misplaced by the Navy. The book is titled "Swift Boat Down, The Real Story of the Sinking of PCF-19" and uses official records and eye witness testimonies, to make the case for "Hostile Fire" rather than the "Official" findings of "Friendly Fire".
This author was there, aboard PCF-12 and relates the story in this spell binding but accurate book.
