BILLINGS, Mont. — Tom Wilber began an improbable journey by asking one question: What happened to Bernie Rupinski?

The radar intercept officer in the backseat of his father's F-4 jet had never been found after the plane was likely hit by hostile MiG aircraft missiles over Vietnam in 1968. Wilber's father's ejection seat and parachute had fired at the last second, and he survived, even though as a prisoner of war for nearly five years in North Vietnam.

      Registration Validation Email

      01/09/2018

      There is still an issue where people registering do not receive the validation email once they sign up on this forum. If you do not receive and respond to the validation email, it will not allow you to become a member. Please check your spam boxes or ask your IT for assistance and whitelist NavyAdvancement.com if you are able to do so.  This is the message I see: "Member has not yet responded to registration validation email."
