    For many years in the 70's I wore a POW bracelet with your nameā€¦.I haven't seen the bracelet in about 40 years, but I remember you. I remember YOU! Well, actually I remember your name and what that bracelet stood for. And now, 40 years later, I'm becoming a Quaker. Thank You, Kenneth Knabb!

    I had to quit to get myself under control. You see I am 50 now and this is the first I have had internet. What a tremendous surprise and shock to be able to put a handsome face with your name. I had no idea it was possible the tears just flowed. All of those yellow roses over the years meant friendship,God willing I get to heaven some day I hope to meet my friend.

    I never met you but I have known you. When I was about 8 I BOUGHT a pow bracelet with your name on it, from that moment on you were special. I wondered what you looked like what you cared about and if I would ever meet you. You were my show n tell a clue times at school,how proud I was to do what I thought was a greAt thing. YOU WERE THE ONE DOING THE GREAT THING. I wore the bracelet until it was thin. I visit the wall and I have always left powers and letters for my hero and friend. I have done that .any times.I stand at panel 40w and stare at line 13 and know from heaven you are there with me. A few weeks ago the traveling wall was in Grove City and my home in Pa. Again as so.many times in DC I have left yellow roses and a letter for my hero and very old friend

    Dear LCDR Kenneth Keith Knabb 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, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter
