The Col Govan Memorial POW/MIA Missing Man Ride honors Col Robert A Govan who is a member of Zorro 42. Zorro 42 went Missing In Action on April 1, 1967 over eastern Laos near the Ho Chi Minh Trail.
The mission of the ride is to bring awareness to those still missing in action, we are bringing attention to Col’s Govan and Williams who were shot down on 1 April 1967 over Laos. In 2002, the laboratory in Hawaii identified them. When both families protested the findings, a review board considered the evidence. The identification was subsequently rescinded in 2003. This was the 1st time that a rescinded identification resulted in names being returned to the MIA list.
Join us for a police escorted ride from Germantown to Ocean City. Proceeds from the ride will help provide holiday meals for our wounded warriors, their families and staff at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, but will also assist us in reach families of servicemen and woman, who may be dealing of PTSD.
