  • My second cousin; the wall that heals replica in Brockway PA this week

    Posted on 6/26/18 - by William Pietsch brit4hunt@outlook.com
    Robert was my Dads first cousin. I grew up in Brookline but never met Robert since he was 10 years older. I first found out he was a MIA in 1970 in a Press Feature on local MIA's. What is spooky was I was asked many time about my Brother Bob being shot down. It turns out I have a brother, Robert F. Pietsch who is 2 years younger than me. There has been much confusion about this.
    My grandson is an honor scout guard as the 238' Memorial Trailer comes to Brockway today. My wife and I are going down.
    Although I never met Robert my entire family is very proud of his service.

    I knew your children growing up in Mt Lebanon. What wonderful people, you would be so proud. I could never imagine the grief they experienced, but held their heads up proud. I often think of how brave you and your family are. May God wrap just arms around you.

  • Never Forgotten-

    Posted on 1/9/17 - by Laura Lee Eckstein
    Like so many others, I wore a bracelet with Lt. Col. Pietsch's name for many years. As the personnel were returned, I searched, hoping that I would see that he was found and returned to the country he loved.
    After many years, I was able to send my bracelet to his father, via the U.S. Air Force. I had a wonderful letter from his dad, telling me all about his son and his family. They have been in my prayers always.
    Although I never knew him, he will always be in my thoughts and prayers.
