Lieutenant Dilger, U.S. Naval Reserve, was a member of Fleet Tactical Support Squadron 50, Atsugi Naval Air Station, Japan. On October 2, 1969, he was a passenger in a Grumman Greyhound Transport Aircraft (C-2A) en-route from Cubi Point Naval Station to the aircraft carrier USS CONSTELLATION (CVA-64) in the Gulf of Tonkin. Contact was lost when the aircraft was about 10 miles from the carrier. His remains were not recovered. His name is inscribed on the Courts of the Missing at the Honolulu Memorial.
