    Dear LCDMR Walter Estes,
    Thank you for your service as an Unrestricted Line Officer (Naval Flight Officer) from the U.S.S. CORAL SEA. I am glad you were identified in 1977. Welcome home. It is important for us to remember all of you. 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.
  • Always in my heart

    I was a young mother with two daughter when I got your braclet. I prayed for you and hoped you would come home. Tonight in Easton MD, you were honored at the Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall ceremony in a special way by my youngest daughter. I still have the bracelet and you will always be part of my story. RIP and thank you for the ultimate sacrifice so that we can live free.

    I wore his bracelet, and unfortunately lost it. But I always remembered his name and finally found out what happened to him. I will never forget his name and was honored to have had the opportunity to have worn the bracelet.

    I came home after a year in nam, Nov 19 1967 the same day as Walters casualty, I received a POW bracelet of Walters and wore it for many many years ,it was very precious to me and i gave it to a very special friend because i wanted it to be in younger hands where the story and memory would go on as i'm getting older, I also told that friend if i ever found his family i would ask for it back where i could donate it to them, thanks to the internet i found them and would like to donate it, it has had a special meaning to me since 1967 , It's time for it to go back home as i'm getting older. I am thankful to finally know the man that was unknown to me for so many years that was always on my mind. Thank you for giving so much Walter Estes Jr.

    PBS aired a show on Vietnam On 9/17/2017 which prompted me to get the bracelet out that I had somewhat forgotten. Realizing I could search the Internet, I was so surprised to see a picture of Lt. Walter Estes, Jr. and his story. It's sad to think how many good men lost their lives in Vietnam and how hard it must have been on their families. Rest in peace Walt. I was proud to wear your bracelet!
