Comment from Ann Holland:
"The first live sighting report I ever saw refers to a male caucasian wearing 'light color frame glasses'. as you can see, Mel's glasses were light beige plastic.  He had two pair - I got one back with his stuff.  Mel was the only one on the hill that even wore glasses.  Pilots always wore gold wire rims."


Two of Mel's friends also lost 11 March 1968 at Site 85
