    As a youngster in the 70's I wore the Colonel's MIA bracelet. Through the years it is not with me anymore, but every September 21st he is in my thoughts. Visiting the Vietnam Wall in DC a few years back I found his name and wept uncontrollably. You do not have to know one personally to be effected by their actions. I attempted to find his dog tags through a lovely young women in Santa Cruz, Ca who was vacationing in VN and found a box of tags in a surplus store. She did not have Glen's. I did end up calling his wife in IN just to let her know I think of him each year, and will continue to. I see she has recently passed away. This is first photo I have seen of him. Colonel, up in heaven, thank you for your immeasurable sacrifice, it is because of you I am free today. THANK YOU!!! You are not forgotten.

    Even 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 dearly
