  • MIA bracelet

    I wore an MIA bracelet with Sgt. Boronski's name on it for years after Vietnam. I may still have it in a drawer. It is gratifying to know he's been found and that he received a proper homecoming so long after his death.

    DEAR SFC BORONSKI,
    THANKS FOR YOUR SERVICE AS A SPECIAL FORCES QUALIFIED COMBAT ENGINEER. I AM SO GLAD YOU WERE IDENTIFIED IN 2001. WELCOME HOME! SUNDAY WAS THE 42ND ANNIVERSARY OF THE FALL OF SAIGON.

    It is Memorial day weekend, a day to take time out and honor your ultimate sacrifice. I will say you are thought of and remembered more often than on just Memorial day. I was too young to grasp the full impact of your loss in 1970. After growing up, serving and retiring from the NAVY I fully appreciate the cost of freedom that you paid in full. Even though your life was cut short, I can only imagine that you lived doing what you loved. Thank You

  • Remembering an American Hero

    Dear SFC John Arthur Boronski, sir,

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for the ultimate sacrifice that you 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. And please know that men and women like you have stepped forward to defend our country yet again, showing the same love for country and their fellow Americans that you did- you would be proud.

    With respect, and the best salute that a civilian can muster for you.

    Curt Carter
