Never forgottenPosted on 7/22/15 - by S/Sgt John R. Boyer, 1967-1976, USAF firstname.lastname@example.orgEven after all these years, my eyes still tear up just reflecting on your ultimate sacrifice. Remember when Tommy, Timmy and Teddy would play with me at your house @ Kadena AFB ? I also cannot recall how many tens of thousands of people who would listen to my story about my mom and dad dropping me off in North Carolina in 1965, for yet another time for me to play with your sons, the last time I would see you. You know how proud I was when T. visited me at McGuire AFB while I was stationed there, before I went to Thailand. I was stationed at Ubon RTAFB, and while there I took the greatest pleasure to catch a hop to Clark AFB, where I connected with a C-135 to arrive in Guam to be Tommy's best man. How proud I still am having had the honor to know and be a part of your family, and like your son, it still is so difficult Colonel to continue our times on earth knowing you weren't here...But, please know, your loss instilled in me a never ending love for those who did pay the ultimate sacrifice, like you sir. I dearly love your family and if anyone would like an inspiration, just cry with me...Thank you again Sir, for allowing me to spend so much time with a real American hero's family, and I too miss you dearlyMORE
FAMILY IS ABLE TO BE FOUND - READ BELOWPosted on 5/20/14 - by LisaIn response to the post from today and others who may have bracelets and wishing to return them to the family - Please read the posts on this site that began in January and have moved forward since then. This MIA had three sons, one is the CEO at Omega Electronic Board Repair Company in Arlington, TX. I spoke with him some months back at 1-800-722-7323 and we were able to return a bracelet. At that time it was the third bracelet, which meant each son then had their own! The family really appreciated being contacted. I am sure there are other family members who would love them. Your best bet would be to contact the son at the above number and go from there. God Bless all who are paying it forward. You will be blessed tenfold. :)MORE
Glendon Ammon 9-21-66Posted on 5/20/14I have never met you. For years I had worn your MIA/POW bracelet. After decades I just found it again. I looked you up and found out you had died in service. From beyond the grave, you have touched me. I cried for you, a man I never met. You are not forgotten, nor your life in vain. Thank you for your service and finding me. I wish to return this bracelet to your family. hopefully someone will read this and contact me.MORE
