REMEMBRANCES

  • In Rememberance

    Posted on 5/13/15
    I have been wearing your bracelet since I was a kid in grade school, when my amazing hearted teacher, Mr. Bowes, each gave us one. I remember finding your name at the vietnam memorial wall that travels, as well as the real one in washington. I never knew you, but you were always there for me around my wrist. It's been about 12 years now and this bracelet holds a lot of memories for me.
    Thank you for everything you did and everything that you have done for me without knowing.

  • In honor of Richard A. Miller, Major, USMC

    I bought your POW/MIA bracelet from the local Marinoe Corp league booth during the county fair. I had enlisted in the USMC in the delayed entry program a few weeks earlier. I was 17 years old and scared to death of what lay ahead. That was 33 years ago. I've been wearing your bracelet every since. God bless you sir and I'm sure you command a company of US Marines guarding the streets of Heaven.

    Dear Richard,
    In the winter of 1999 I bought your POW/MIA braclet at the foot steps of the Lincoln memorial. I chose you because you were born two months after my father and in the same city. Eventually the braclet broke. I saved it. Your service an sacrifice meant so much to me that I had he braclet melted and turned into my wedding ring, which I wear today.
    Very Respecfully,
    Michael

  • Final Mission of CAPT Richard A. Miller

    Posted on 6/13/14 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    On November 22, 1965, CAPT Francis E. Visconti was the pilot of a UH-34D helicopter "wing" in sections of 2 helicopters each on the 3rd hop that night on a combat mission in South Vietnam. Bad weather forced Visconti's aircraft out to sea about halfway between Chu Lai and Dan Nang, (Quang Ngai province) and he was separated from the rest of the group. Also onboard the aircraft were CAPT Richard A. Miller, CPL Thomas E. Douglas, and CPL Victor J. Pirker, all from the same unit. The helicopter went down and all four Marines were classified Missing in Action. The casualties are listed as battle related, which means the aircraft was probably hit by enemy fire. The U.S. believed that the Vietnamese could have accounted for the four men. There has been no word of any of the crew of the ill-fated chopper since that day. The Vietnamese have denied any knowledge of them. Richard A. Miller and Francis E. Visconti were promoted to the rank of Major, Thomas E. Douglas and Victor J. Pirker to the rank of Staff Sergeant during the period they were maintained missing. [Narrative taken from pownetwork.org; image from wikipedia.org]
