300 Missing, 50 Green Berets – Soldier of Fortune Magazine

MACV-SOG had greater than its share of MIAs. One of probably the most well-known was Larry Thorne, a Finnish veteran of the so-called Winter Struggle towards the Soviet Union in the course of the prelude to World Conflict II and a recipient of the Mannerheim Cross. Thorne was carrying a bolt-action .30-06 Springfield when he turned MACV-SOG’s first MIA in Laos.
