Thank you

Thank you all for the kind comments. To those who wore his POW/MIA bracelet we are grateful. It was an act of hope, and a prayer during the many years we were uncertain about his fate and that of so many others. A reminder to return the living and account for the dead. A warning to our government to search, negotiate, and excavate his crash site, which it eventually did in the last few years. A child holds out hope, feels torment and uncertainty, but some questions were answered. Peace. Keep the hope that we will meet our loved ones again. Hold it near your heart. Never give it away.

Thank you
Deepest thanks to you who wore my uncle Richard's bracelet for years and prayed for him and his family, and for your constancy to post in his memory on The Wall. I was a small girl when he was lost but for many years we hoped and prayed for his return. Now my son's friends are going off to war in their turn, Afghanistan and Iraq, brave young men and women, still willing to offer their sacrifice and possibly their lives to serve. Uncle Richard's loss has left a hole in our family for so many decades, most deeply of course to my aunt and cousins. Peace. Memorial Day, 2012

Happy Birthday Uncle Dick. Just feels like last week I met you at your sister's house. (My Aunt Ang's) Talking about if the military was going to be part of my life. It was, but not as we talked. I lost your bracelet years ago. I pray for you, Aunt Ang and Uncle Don daily.

Oh, I Have Slipped The Surly Bonds Of Earth And Danced The Skies On Laughter-Silvered Wings Sunward I've Climbed And Joined The Tumbling Mirth... Of Sun-Split Clouds And Done A Hundred Things...
