The Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency partnered with the University of New Orleans, University of Innsbruck and the National World War II Museum to search for U.S. Army Air Forces Capt. Lawrence E. Dickson, a Tuskegee Airman assigned to the 100th Fighter Squadron based in Ramitelli, Italy. Capt. Dickson experienced engine trouble while returning from a reconnaissance mission in Prague, Czechoslovakia, Dec. 23, 1944 and has since been considered missing in action. (DoD video by Staff Sgt.

    Thank you for your efforts. Lawrence Dickson is my uncle. I have submitted DNA, I hope it's him. Once again Thank you Dewitt Dickson, Jr.

    Your work is greatly appreciated as I am a grandchild of Lawrence Dickson & my mom is his daughter ( & has submitted DNA to assist). She has shared his Tuskegee Airmen story with us to keep his memory alive and has searched for information over the decades to establish a clear picture of her father's short life to help close this chapter definitively. His wife (my grandmother) recently passed away December 2017 age 96. So this is very timely to hear of your search to hopefully close his chapter properly too. What an amazing recovery...thank you! - Amber D.
