    I have worn William Kimsey's POW/MIA bracelet since 1970. As we celebrate Memorial Day 2016, I still remember the sacrifices made by our brave young soldiers and pray that our country never forgets the price of Freedom.

    God bless those who paid the ultimate price - and may the families find comfort In knowing their loved ones are never forgotten.

    Dear CWO William Arthur Kimsey Jr, 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, Sir

    Curt Carter

    William or Bill as I knew him made a lasting impression in my young life as an young skiing enthusiast in Grand Junction, Colorado. When I was in junior high school Bill was a member of the Grand Mesa Ski Patrol. Bill's love for skiing and his ability to connect with those who also loved the sport, added to the many qualities my family found in this fine young man. There was a group of us; young skiers, who always hung out together. Bill adopted us and made sure we were safe while riding the ski lifts and navigating the slopes. Bill would always take time to give us tips on skiing and had such patience with our group of "silly teenagers". When our family learned that Bill was MIA we were in shock and the impact of his loss has stayed with my sister and I who still reside in Grand Junction. I doubt that his family, who moved from the area, knew how highly those of us who knew Bill thought him. I will always remember Bill and hope his family has found comfort from the recent services in his honor. My sister and I were blessed and honored to have known him.
