David C. Greeson, #51, 1948 – 1969
Lt Col Fred R. Swearingen, CAP, writes:
“David Greeson was a cadet from the Melbourne (Fla.) Cadet Squadron. He attended several encampments and IACE. He passed the Spaatz exam on the first try, and was only a C/1Lt at the time. He worked on the Wing CAC as an advisor.
“After completing two years at Florida International University (now the Univ. of Central Fla.), he joined the US Army Warrant Officer Program. He was killed in action in Vietnam just several days after arriving. His younger brother Johnny, also a former CAP cadet, was killed just 60 days before while preforming duties as a medic. David’s younger sister, Pat Greeson made it to the Earhart and was a senior member in Florida and Texas Wings. David is survived by his parents, two sisters and two other younger brothers.”
