    Dear Cap Ronald Forrester,
    Thank you for your service as a Naval Flight Officer. You are still MIA. PLEASE COME HOME.
    It is now fall, and as the seasons pass, it is important to remember you all. 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. Be at peace.

    I met Ron while attending Texas A&M University. He was a member of Squadron Eight in the Corps of Cadets. It's been 45 years since I last saw him at his wedding in Odessa,.but I remember his laughter and his incessant talk of the Marine Corps during those years at A&M. I have worn his MIA bracelet for at least the last 35 years. It never leaves my wrist unless medically required. I think of him often and remember him fondly. He was always a tad bit slow, but he's coming home. Semper Fi and Gig 'Em, Fogger. Scaffold Ass--FTAC of '69.

    My sister has one of those bracelets they made to Honor heroes. Side had worn it, prayed for his family and thought of him for years. She'd like to return it to someone in his family. Anyone know someone?

    Dear Captain Ronald Wayne Forrester, 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
