On Veteran's Day, Nathaniel visits the Vietnam War Memorial. His visit remains short as he finds out that Red Tornado has been lost in the astral plane. So he astral project his consciousness to the astral plane to find Tornado while his mortal body is watched over by Chester King.
During his search, he encounters a memory of his brother Tony, who died in the war, and the Phantom Stranger until he finds Tornado. Through Nathaniel's words, Tornado remembers who he is but unfortunately he regains his insanity as he claims that Nathaniel betrayed and abandoned him in the astral plane. Tornado shunts Nathaniel in the astral plane and returns to the real world with the intent of crushing Nathaniel's body. However, Chester manages to talk down Tornado. After Nathaniel returns, Tornado apologizes to him and Chester.
