Funeral for Vietnam vet after nearly five decades

After nearly 47 years, friends and relatives in the Willamette Valley town of Lebanon, Ore., have been able to bury a Vietnam War airman killed in action on Christmas Eve 1965.

Chief Master Sgt. Arden Hassenger was laid to rest with full military honors Friday.

Hassenger joined the Air Force and served as a gunner on several missions during the war. He was 29 when he died in a plane crash in Laos. An investigation team recently found the crash site and his remains.

Hassenger's wife, Sherrie, called it "a beautiful day even though it rained." Now 73, she recalled her husband as "very sweet, very loving, very honest and everything he ever did was done perfect."
