    I also received a MIA bracelet with MAJ Hugh M. Fanning's name during the Vietnam War and wore it for many years in your honor. It rests in a shadow box in my home where it will remain. There is not a single Memorial Day that I do not think of him and the many thousands of men who bravely gave all for our freedom. I was fortunate enough to stumble upon a Life Magazine article many years ago about him and his wife's struggle to bring his remains home. I live only 26 miles from his hometown of Fort Worth and learned that for the first time today on this website. RIP MAJ Fanning.

    I have worn Major Fanning's MIA bracelet for 44 years, not just to honor his service and sacrifice, but also in a tangible sign of respect to all of our country's Warrior Class.

    Dear Captain Hugh Michael Fanning, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter
