    Dear Captain Richard Butt,
    Thank you for your service as a Tactical Aircraft Pilot (Various.) You were a POW (sigh.) I read you were identified in 1986.
    Welcome Home.
    As we celebrate Labor Day, and enjoy our freedom, it is important for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

    Richard was a part of my life in the 70's. I was the young girl that proudly wore the POW bracelet with Colonel Richard Butt engraved into the copper bracelet.I feel so honored to be able to tell his loved ones, that Richard made a difference in my life forever! In October I had the pleasure to visit Washington DC. Top on my list was to visit the Vietnam Wall and find Richard. His name was up so high I could not scratch his name. It was a very moving experience and somewhat closure that I carry with me forever. I often wondered what he looked like, where he lived etc. And now i know.. My goodness he was handsome!! Like a movie star! He will be with me in my heart always. One day in the earth made new I want to meet him. May god bless the memory of Richard and comfort the people that loved him.
