Pentagon Corrects Mistaken Identity

Download PDF for this date

The Pentagon has announced that one of the 12 bodies released by Hanoi and flown to Hawaii for laboratory examination by U.S. experts was not that of Air Force Capt. Lawrence H. Golberg of Cloquet, Minn., but is in fact that of Lt. Patrick F. Wynn of Satellite Beach, Fla, who was a crew member of the plane commanded by Golberg. Thus the fate of Golberg, whose name is frequently and erroneously spelled Goldberg. is still undetermined. However, the Pentagon positively identified the remains of Air Force Lt. Stephen W. Diamond of Roslyn Heights, N.Y. who was missing in action in Vietnam and also among the 12 bodies released by the Vietnamese.

CORRECTION: A story in the March 25 Daily News Bulletin on missionaries stated that the B’nai Yeshua of Graham, Texas has purchased a former school in Stony Brook, N.Y. for $480 million in cash. The correct figure should have been $480,000 in cash.
