    Dear Ltc Paul Getchell,
    Thank you for your service as a Bombardier-Navigator. I am glad you were identified in 2006. Welcome Home. Happy Advent. 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.

    Bracelet says "MAJ" so I hope this is the right Veteran. I have had my bracelet with your name since 1970. I have prayed and thought of you often.
    Thank you for your life for our country.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear LTC Paul Everett Getchell, 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
