    50 years. It took Col. Edgar “Felton” Davis 50 years – and a little help along the way – to find his way home to Goldsboro, North Carolina, but he finally made it. On Sept. 17, 1968, Davis took off aboard an RF-4C Phantom fighter-bomber aircraft on a photo-reconnaissance mission over the Lao People’s Democratic Republic. Under the guise of night, Davis and his pilot attempted to gather information on an enemy location and give allied forces a critical advantage.

As the Phantom went down, the pilot safely ejected and was later rescued, but when no contact could be made with Davis, he was declared missing-in-action.
