Final Mission of CPL James F. WorthPosted on 5/13/16 - by firstname.lastname@example.orgCPL James F. Worth served with Subunit 1, 1st Air Naval Gunfire Liaison Companies (ANGLICO), Fleet Marine Force, Pacific (FMFPAC). On April 1, 1972, CPL Worth was the naval member of a gunfire liaison team in Gio Linh District, Quang Tri Province. This incident coincided with the launching of the Spring 1972 offensive by the Vietnam People's Army. CPL Worth's team was hit by a heavy ground attack and was forced to withdraw. At that point, Corporal Worth was determined to be missing. On the afternoon of April 2nd, CPL Worth came up on his radio with a message that he was on his way overland to Dong Ha. He never arrived. CPL Worth was initially declared missing and, in December 1976, was declared dead/body not recovered. He was never reported alive in the Vietnamese prison system.

My brother on ArmsPosted on 3/31/16You inspired every time you saw me...R.I.P. SEMPER FI
Was thinking of you today...Posted on 4/18/14 - by Kerns, Eugene F Sgt. USMC '65-'69Hello Brother, though you and I have never met, we are Brothers because we are Marines. Though I didn't serve in combat... I did serve in Nam from '68-'69. I have worn your bracelet for many many years and I discovered today that it has started to crack. I swore all years ago I'd continue to wear your bracelet until you come home so I spent some time this evening searching for another so I can continue my promise... Until You Come Home. I'll leave the old one at the Wall to be added to the thousands of other mementos left there...MORE
I've often wondered over the years since 1969 how God choose who came home and who didn't and I've never been able to figure it out....why me and not you... I pray that one day you will return home to complete your journey. God Bless you Brother...
Remembering An American HeroPosted on 11/20/13 - by Curt Carter email@example.comDear CPL James Frederick Worth, sirMORE
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
Thank youPosted on 8/11/13 - by SSgt LoweI picked your bracelet because I was drawn to it. I found out later we share a common surname (through my paternal grandmother) which made it more special. I've kept it on my mantle for years and have always kept it clean so the sun may always shine on it. My youngest son asked me what it was so I let him know who you are and how we are forever greatfull for what you have done for us. I let my uncle Joe who served as a Marine in Vietnam know that I hold you in the highest respects as I do all of you. Thank you for being one of my heroes and the reasons why I love to serve our country.MORE
