~ In Remembrance, On Your Birthday ~

On your Birthday, with Profound Gratitude for your Courage and your years, of Service and Dedication, to our Country and for Freedom. Rest in Peace, LTC., Edwin Lee Atterberry and know, that you will, NEVER BE FORGOTTEN. I'am the sister of a young hero, who also made the Supreme Sacrifice in Vietnam, in 1967.... 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 HUNRED THINGS. YOU HAVE NOT DREAMED, OF WHEELED AND SOARED AND SWUNG, HIGH IN THE SUNLIT SILENCE, HOV'RING THERE, I'VE CHASED THE SHOUTING WIND ALONG AND FLUNG, MY EAGER CRAFT THROUGH FOOTLESS HALLS, OF AIR. UP, UP THE LONG DELIRIOUS, BURNING BLUE, I'VE TOPPED THE WINDSWEPT HEIGHTS WITH EASY GRACE, WHERE NEVER LARK, OR EVEN EAGLE FLEW AND WHILE WITH SILENT, LIFTING MIND, I'VE TROD HIGH UNTRESPASSED SANCTITY OF SPACE, PUT OUT MY HAND AND TOUCHED, THE FACE OF GOD. ~ By John G. Magee, Jr. ~ - ~GOD BLESS YOU, LTC., ATTERBERRY.~

Remembrance
Honoring the memory, of a patriot and hero. Thank you, for your dedication, courage and service, to our nation. Edwin Atterberry and Thomas Parrott, were downed while on a recon mission near Gia Lam, on 8/12/1967, captured and taken, to Hanoi. On 5/10/69, Edwin and another POW., went through the roof and made 3, miles, in 12, hrs., before recapture. Edwin was, never seen alive again and Dramesi, survived 38, hrs., of continuous and intense, torture. All captives, were subjected to another session of special treatment for several months, after this escape, attempt. Thomas Parrott was released, on 3/14/73 and the remains, of Edwin returned, in March, of 1974. He was listed, as DIC., 5/18/69. We have, a special love and respect, for all these, men! Could we, have endured, this treatment? I truly don't, know. My brother, Maj., Arthur Baker, was MIA., in Laos, for 40+, yrs., but died, 'clean.' I do thank God, for that mercy. LTC., Atterberry, I salute, you and offer a belated, Welcome Home, Sir. May God bless and keep you, hold you, in His loving arms and comfort, your family and friends. Rest in peace, Edwin Lee Atterberry, YOU SHALL, BE FOREVER REMEMBERED!!!

Edwin was murdered, by the North Vietnamese, subsequent to his escape attempt, from the Hanoi Hilton. He was, a true hero and a member, of my extended family. The North Vietnamese, unleashed a reign of torture on the POW's after they beat Edwin, to death. Read the book P.O.W., for horrific details, of this period.

POW/MIA Bracelet
To the family of Maj. Edwin Atterberry: I have been wanting to research the story on Edwin Atterberry for many years, and was happy to find this webpage. I have a MIA/POW bracelet with Maj. Atterberry's name that I wore for many years. I would like to pass it on to his family, so please contact me at the above email address. Many thoughts and prayers went out to your family as I wore that bracelet.and I hope and pray that you have found peace. I am thankful for the part Maj. Atterberry played, and for the ultimate price he paid for our freedom.

I had, a stainless steel, POW/MIA., Bracelet, with LTC., Atterberry's name, on it. I was, about 9-10, years old, when a friend of my mother gave me, the bracelet. I've long, lost the bracelet, but I remember, his name and I remember reading, the lists of returning POW's everyday, to see if his name, was on it. I've always wanted, to visit the memorial to see if his name, was on it. I would, like his family to know, that someone remembers his name, even all these years, later.
