    Dear Captain Paul Derby,
    Thank you for your service as a VMFA (I) F-4 Phantom Pilot. You are still MIA. PLEASE COME HOME.
    It has been too long, and it's about time for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

    I also wear a red memorial bracelet in honor of Paul. I am originally from Wisconsin near Menomonie but did not know Paul or his family. I wish to thank Paul for his service to our country and helping to insure that we retain our freedom.
