Centralia, missouri is Rodney's home town,a small rural
community in central Missouri,very friendly people, a
nice area to raise a family.
In Honor and a rememberance of Rodney so he would always be
remembered by the citizens of this small community a son who
never returned from Southeast Asia during the Vietnam war. This
street was authorized by the city of Centralia, Missouri
The chain on the left of this page is to remind us that Rodney may be
held as a POW somewhere in Southeast Asia, U.S.S.R. or China. The
U.S.Government declaired all POW-MIA's dead without any real proof.
We must never give up hope that our Government if pressured by the
citizens of this country will give a true and full account of all the men
that were listed as MIA,and later declaired dead,body not recovered.
1. All 8 men survived the crash of the Huey helicopter.
2. Rodney Griffin and Captain Dale W. Richardson were seen
running into the tall elephant grass and firing their weapons at
3. SP-4 Frederick H. Crowson recounted seeing Rodney Griffin and
Bunyan Price firing their M-16 rifles at the enemy troops before
he himself was captured.
4. Bunyan Price was never seen in captivity, but Maslowski and
Crowson always believer that Price had been captured.
5. Captain Dale W. Richardson was known to have been captured
yet the U.S. Government listed his status and that of Rodney
Griffin as Missing In Action.
6. Captain Richardson was interrogated by the Viet Cong captors
about a "TOP SECRET" document they produced. The said
document was last known to be in Captain Richardson possession.
7. No one ever seen Rodney Griffin captured or killed. Yet on a report
dated May 18, 1970 states he was captured in Cambodia.
Remember none of the other men that were captured in this incident ever saw
Bunyan Price in captivity. In October 1971, a former National Liberation Front
(Viet Cong) soldier identified a photo of Bunyan Price as resembling the Amer-
ican prisoner whom he had seen in June 1970.
Futher, in June 1971, three ARVN soldiers escaped from the B-7 Detention camp.
They identified a photo of Price as the American held for a year in the same camp
One report from escaped ARVN POW stated that Price had been captured by the
Khmer Rouge (communist Cambodians) and the prison camp he was held in was
under their control, not the Viet Cong's.
It is very possible that Rodney Griffin could have also been captured by
Cambodian Khmer Rouge,like Price just because he was never seen in captivity
doesn't mean that he wasn't and still may be held prisoner by the Cambodians,
or sent to another Southeast Asian country.
The above document obtained from the Library of Congress
DATE OF REPORT: MAY 18, 1974
DATE OF INFORMATION: 1970
TYPE OF INFORMATION: U.S.Army Files
This document list Griffin as being captured in CAMBODIA in 1970, but it doesn't say
why he wasn't on any of the Cambodian POW list. How can the Government list him
as dead, body not recovered? What POW camp was he in? If all POW'S were really
released durning Operation Home Coming, why wasn't Rodney Griffin released? Until
1973, Rodney was listed as Missing In Action. Where is Rodney? Is he still being held
in Cambodia or some other Asian country? If the Army Files listed him as captured in
1970, then why was he being listed MIA on other reports? There are a lot of unanswered
questions about Rodney Griffin and almost 2000 other American servicemen that have
not been accounted for missing in Southeast Asia. Get involved write the President, vice
President, Congressman and Senators respectfully request a full accounting of all our

I never knew
My wife and my brother-
in-law went to school with
him. What I have learned
from them is,Rodney was
well liked,he was a kind
and quiet type person,just
an average all american
boy from a small town in
mid Missouri who believed
he could make a difference
in the world by doing his
part in Viet Nam. He left a
young wife and his family
to serve his country he loved
and respected. Why did his
country leave him behind
in Southeast Asia?
