    Although we never met personally, I want to thank you James Hamilton Hise, for your continued vigilant and faithful service, to this great country of ours!

    Your Spirit is alive--and strong, therefore, you shall never be forgotten!

    Again, thank you LTJG Hise, for a job well done!


  • Not Forgotten

    I have not forgotten you. I chair the Adoption Committee for The National League of Families of Prisoners of War and Missing in Action in Southeast Asia. We will always remember the 1,889 Americans still unaccounted for in Southeast Asia and the thousands of others that lost their lives. We will not stop our efforts until all of you are home where you belong.

    We need to reach the next generation so that they will carry on when our generation is no longer able. To do so, we are attempting to locate photographs of all the missing. If you are reading this remembrance and have a photo and/or memory of this missing American that you would like to share for our project, please contact me at:

    I didn’t know James Hise, but he has been a part of my life for nearly 15 years. As a Freshman in College in Iowa City, IA. I was given an MIA bracelet that had the name of James H. Hise inscribed on it. I wore it because I respected the men and women who sacrificed so much when their country asked them to serve, and also because my own father came home to us when so many did not.

    It was some years before the Internet matured enough that I could more easily do research on Jim Hise, and find out who he was. He was mentioned in Admiral Paul Gilchrist’s Memoir, “Feet Wet.” As an outstanding fighter pilot and Naval Aviator, and his loss at sea was a tragedy for the Navy, his family, and in a small way, for me. I wish I could have met this fine and gallant gentleman.

Here you can go beyond the names on The Wall to see the faces, share the stories and read the remembrances posted by friends, neighbors, classmates and family members.

All of these photos will be showcased in The Education Center at The Wall on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the effort to collect these photos and ensure their faces will never be forgotten, visit
