POW BraceletPosted on 11/30/15 - by firstname.lastname@example.orgI remember the day I received my MIA bracelet with CDR. Henry Strong Jr ( 5-25-72). I was almost 13 years old. Since that time, I have worn my bracelet every December. It would be an honor to pass this bracelet to a member of his family.MORE
POW braceletPosted on 5/24/15 - by Linda Moyal email@example.comI don't remember the exact year I got this MIA Bracelet with "CDR. Henry Strong Jr." engraved on it with the date he went MIA, but I know it was when they first started raising $$ to remember and find our MIAs. I have worn and kept this bracelet all these years and I am saddened that we still don't know his fate. I would be more than happy at this time to give this bracelet to his family. If you are interested please email me.MORE
Final Mission of CAPT Henry H. Strong Jr.Posted on 11/3/14 - by firstname.lastname@example.orgWhen Douglas Aircraft created the A-4 Skyhawk the intent was to provide the Navy and Marine Corps with an inexpensive, lightweight attack and ground support aircraft. The design emphasized low-speed control and stability during take-off and landing as well as strength enough for catapult launch and carrier landings. The plane was so compact that it did not need folding wings for aboard ship storage and handling. In spite of its diminutive size, the A-4 packed a devastating punch and performed well where speed and maneuverability were essential. CAPT Henry H. Strong Jr. was a Skyhawk pilot who participated in a strike on a target near the city of Vinh on May 25, 1972. During this mission, Strong's aircraft was shot down by enemy fire and he was declared Missing in Action. When 591 Americans were released from POW camps in 1973, Henry Strong was not among them. The Vietnamese denied any knowledge of him. [Taken from pownetwork.org]MORE
Remembering an American HeroPosted on 5/25/13 - by Curt Carter email@example.com
Dear Captain Henry Hooker Strong 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
