    Dear Major Warren Richard Spencer, sir

    Remembering you and those you served with on this upcoming Memorial Day holiday, Monday, May 28, 2018 You are not and will not be forgotten.

    May my family and I never, ever forget the price that has been paid for the freedoms we have in this country- and may your family, friends, and fellow vets know Americans will always care.

    With respect, Sir

    I was your Aircraft Commander , friend, next door neighbor. The hardest thing I ever did was to walk over to CAROLYN and tell her no one knew or saw what happened to Warren or Craig (Paul). Once the BAIL OUT LIGHT was hit, it was only a matter of mere seconds before I woke up (must have passed out from the ejection blast) in my chute only to land right in the hands of the enemy. I asked if anyone had seen or heard from or about you but no one ffhad. I was in two POW camps and hoped to find you and Craig (Paul). Through the years I have talked to anybody with any understanding of flying a B-52 to ffind out if there was any way at all I could have saved the plane and my 2 crewmembers but no one could tell me ANTHING I could have done.

    I’ve missed our friendship and have thought of you often. Wendy and her family visited us and we went over every scrap of memory of you, our friendship, your excellence and professionalism in your job and every single aspect of that night. I wanted Wendy to know my friend and how good you were at your job. I wanted her to know all I could tell her about the father she lost. She is a fine young woman, married to a really supportive man and your two grandsons would have really made tou proud.

    if it’s any consolation, we hit our target, the POWS were released and the war was ended. Job, well done, my friend. It was an honor to serve with you and an even bigger honor to call you FRIEND. You have NOT been forgotten. I will see you again and we can catch up.
