Today marks the rare occasion that serves as the U.S. government’s assigned anniversary date for the sacrifice of Navy Captain Milton J. Vescelius Jr., 32, of Hartland, Mich. However, it was September 21, 1967 when Milton was shot down over North Vietnam. The Hartland High graduate parachuted to the ground and was surrounded by the enemy. The U.S. government said Milton died “at some point” as a POW. When his remains were identified in 1986, the government selected Feb. 29, 1980 as the day of death. He was survived by his mom, wife and three children. We will #neverforget the Vescelius family. See MoreSee Less
