In a photo taken earlier in his U.S. Air Force career, Capt. Larry Hanley poses beside a T-38 aircraft. A Walla Walla resident, Hanley was lost in action while flying over Laos on Nov. 4, 1969. His remains were recently identified and will be given a burial with full military honors in Walla Walla this summer. The photo was donated by Hanley’s mother to VFW Post 3377, located near Austin, Texas, after post members adopted Hanley to represent POWs and MIAs for all wars and all services.
