Jeff Wandel and his wife, Sandi, visit Ellsworth’s Memorial Park on Ellsworth Air Force Base, S.D., on July 30, 2019. In December 1975, Wandel and three of his fellow crewmembers – Capt. Martin E. Graham Jr., Capt. Joseph M. Furda and 1st Lt. Karwin M. Plucker – passed away in a plane crash just south of Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska. Wandel’s family spent several years searching for a memorial plaque dedicated to Wandel and his crew. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Christina Bennett)
