Hi, I hope someone here might be able to help me, although it's a long shot. Thanks in advance of taking the time to read this.
My late father-in-law (Aurelio Franklin Vilongné Ripalda, he died February last year) was a very private person. (For example, his family only found out he was honored by some university when they found a newspaper article about it)
He was in the Ecuadorian airforce and was lend out to the US to fight in Vietnam. (This part of how he ended up in Vietnam was not so clear to me, any history-buffs can clarify this part?)
My wife doesn't know I'm looking into this, but I think she'd greatly appreciate finding out more about that period of her fathers life.
