I always found Warren to be a very caring, outgoing, and loving person.  He was always there when someone needed help.  He always had a smile on his face.  I can't remember Warren ever being in a "bad mood."  We all could learn a lesson from Warren.  God bless Warren for what he did for his (our country).  May God be with his family.

Warren was one of my best friends in high school.  A happier person would be hard to find.  Thank you Warren for your service to our country.

Warren was one my good friends.  I wore a MIA bracelet with his name on it for years.  The world is a lesser place without people like him; however, it is also a better place as he and other brave soldiers give and gave their lives to help perserve our country.

Warren was my best friend. Some things you may not have known about him: Favorite TV programs – “Twilight Zone” & “Outer Limits.”  Favorite beer: Pabst Blue Ribbon. Favorite candy: Milk Duds.  Loved playing cards and tennis and squirrel hunting (afterwards, going to his grandma’s house to make home-made squirrel gravy & biscuits…yum). Warren visited me while I was teaching at the University of Denver, just a few months before he was shot down. I admired his patriotism and willingness to serve his country. Simply put, Warren was a good guy and true friend.

On this memorial Day, May 25, 2015, I want to thank Warren and all the men and women who have given their life to help keep America free.  I also want to thank those who are serving their Country now and to thank the men and women who have served to help keep America free.

On Memorial Day, I always think of all the men and women who have given their lives to help keep America safe.  Warren was a special person and it is so sad that he lost his life in Viet Nam.

Roy  Spencer
Vietnam Veteran-Air Force Pilot
Lest We Forget Our Heroes Sacrifice
On December 20, 1972, three B52 aircraft, call sign 'Quilt Cell,' departed Anderson Air Base, Guam for a bombing mission over Hanoi. One of the aircraft was flown by Capt. Terry M. Geloneck. The crew consisted of 1Lt. William Y. Arcuri, co-pilot Capt. Craig A. Paul, Electronic Warfare Officer Capt. Warren R. Spencer, the radar navigator 1LT Michael R. Martini, navigator and SSgt. Roy Madden, the gunner. Approaching the initial point where the bombing run was to begin, the EWO (Paul) reported SAM signals. The aircraft instituted evasive maneuvers while calmly running through their checklist in preparation of releasing the twenty-seven 750-pound bomb load. About 30 seconds to target, three or four SAMs were sighted. The crew could do nothing but watch their progress until the 'bombs away' was called and evasive action could be taken. After releasing the bomb load, the aircraft had been in a hard turn about 10 seconds when the loud metallic bank of an exploding SAM hit them, accompanied by a bright white flash. The aircraft was still airborne and in its post-target turn. Martini reported that he, Arcuri and Spencer were okay, but that they had sustained a fuel leak in the left main fuel tank, and that cabin pressurization was lost. Paul had been hit and was bleeding heavily. There were four six-inch holes in the fuselage next to Madden, and his leg was shattered. As the aircraft began losing altitude, the crew prepared for bailout. Geloneck, Arcuri, Martini and Madden successfully ejected from the aircraft and were captured immediately. It is not known whether Spencer and Paul ejected. When they were released in mid-February, 1973, Madden, Martini, Arcuri and Geloneck were all injured Madden's leg was still in dangerous condition, and he was brought home on a litter. The leg was later amputated. The Vietnamese returned the remains of Paul and Spencer on September 30, 1977.
