I am searching for my father, Major Robert Bennett Swenck, who died in Vietnam in 1971. I was 12 years old; my two sisters were 6 and 9. He died in a chopper crash while on a rescue mission on Thanksgiving Day. At first there was crying, a funeral with four roses, a mother with hopeless eyes...and then Silence. I was too scared to ask unwelcome questions. Until now. I am searching for infomation about my father, but actually, I am searching for a piece of myself.
