    In 1960 I was a Crew Chief Mechanic on a USAF RB-47 aircraft. Ross was a Lieutenant and an Electronics Recon technician on my plane. Ross and I were both Hams radio operators. One day he came out for a flight and told me he would not see me again as he was going into flight training for fighters the next week. I never saw him again. We have seen his name on the wall and have his rubbing. Ross, you were a good man. I think of you often. Please let me salute you, Sir! RIP

    I have had Roscoe's bracelet since the late 1960's or 70's. On April 29, 2001 I read in the Eureka, CA Time Standard newspaper that his remains had been identified by a single tooth. I am giving the bracelet and the newspaper article to my son who teaches high school US History. I hope he can use it to show the sacrifice that individuals and their loved ones made and how much they lost during the Viet Nam war.

    I wore a bracelet of remembrance, for Major Fobair,all through high school and college. And, even though I no longer wear the bracelet on my wrist I still hold his memory in my heart.

    Dear LTC Roscoe Henry Fobair, 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
