"Promise me you're going to find out what happened to him."
All Lillian Calfee wanted to know was the fate of her only son.
On March 11, 1968, Lillian was told by her daughter-in-law, June Calfee, that her son, Master Sgt. James Calfee was missing in action. He was part of a secret mission in Southeast Asia, and his family was given no other details. The Calfees clung to the word "missing," holding out hope that James would be found and returned to them. Even after they were told his status was changed to "killed in action - body not recovered," Lillian waited.
