Forrest Fenn

AFEES member Forrest Fenn died on September 7, 2020.  His obituary read, “During a one-year tour of duty in Vietnam in the late 1960s, Forrest Fenn learned about the futility of war. He flew well over 300 missions and was shot down twice. Reflecting on his own role in the conflict and the price the world had paid, he wrote that the 58,000-plus American deaths would become ‘but an asterisk in the history of a forgotten war.'”  For a full obituary, see the article in the Santa Fe New Mexican, dated Sept. 9, 2020, “Forrest Fenn, 1930-2020, Combat pilot, gallery owner and creator of famed treasure hunt dies.”
