Of the following list of Floridians lost from the Vietnam War, 25 were lost in South Vietnam, 22 in Laos, 18 in North Vietnam and 4 in Cambodia.  The whereabouts of Capt Speicher from Desert Storm is unknown.  In case you are wondering, Ho Chi Minh City and Saigon are one and the same.
Of the 69 missing from the Vietnam War, 53 were aircraft losses, 2 sea craft, and 14 ground losses.  Capt Speicher was piloting an FA-18 when he went missing the first night of the Gulf War.
