Capt. John W. Consolvo - POW/MIA RECOGNITION DAY 2019

The Department of Defense conducted a ceremony at the Pentagon on Friday, 20 September 2019 in recognition of POW/MIA Recognition Day. Deputy Defense Secretary David L. Nordquist remembered the 1,587 MIAs from the Vietnam War as well as all those still unaccounted for from WWII, the Korean War, the Cold War and other conflicts. Since the 2018 Ceremony, DPAA has positively identified 7 Vietnam War MIAs. Captain John Wadsworth Consolvo, Jr., USNA Class of 1966, USMC, is one of those 1,587 MIAs unaccounted for in Southeast Asia from the Vietnam War. He is one of 5 graduates from his U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis class who is still MIA. The other 4 USNA Class of 1966 MIAs are: 1) LT Victor Buckley; 2) LT Bruce Fryar; 3) LT Leland Sage; and 4) LCDR Marvin Wiles. As of the date of this ceremony, there are 55 USNA graduates still MIA in SEA from the Vietnam War.

Remembering a friend that I never met.

When I learned that the man on my original POW bracelet returned home, I replaced his with one bearing your name. When it broke, I contacted the National League of Families to order a new one. They put me in touch with your mother and I wrote her a letter and received a beautiful note in return. I am a former Soldier and Marine and wear your bracelet often. Maybe someday we will meet. Until then I will lift a cold one in your honor whenever the mood strikes. Semper Fi, Captain.

Yesterday I remembered your birthday sir. I still wear your POW/MIA bracelet and will do so until you are accounted for.

Semper Fidelis,

Bracelet

I recently cleaned an old jewelry box that contained a silver bracelet with John's name engraved in it that I bought many years ago 1968?? I was sad to see that this heroic man had passed GOD Bless for his service to this country!!!
