Not Forgotten

I have not forgotten you. I chair the Adoption Committee for The National League of Families of Prisoners of War and Missing in Action in Southeast Asia. We will always remember the 1,889 Americans still unaccounted for in Southeast Asia and the thousands of others that lost their lives. We will not stop our efforts until all of you are home where you belong.

We need to reach the next generation so that they will carry on when our generation is no longer able. To do so, we are attempting to locate photographs of all the missing. If you are reading this remembrance and have a photo and/or memory of this missing American that you would like to share for our project, please contact me at:

Thomas Earl Dunlop

I wore the bracelet with Thomas Earl Dunlop's name engraved on it from 1973 through 1981. I met a friend in college at the State University of New York, College at Oswego who also wore a bracelet engraved with his name. She and I always checked the papers for any word about Dunlop because he was listed as MIA. I am posting this on Veteran's Day, 2002 because I have been thinking about Thomas and his family today. I will always remember a man whom I have never met because of his great heroism and ultimate sacrifice of his life for our freedom. God bless.

Thomas Earl Dunlop

I live in Jacksonville, FL and I went to DC in February 2001 for a job interview with the State Department. After the interview, my friend and I walked to the Memorial. After that moving experience, we saw a vendor cart being manned by a veteran and he was selling MIA bracelets. Just on a whim, my friend and I started looking through them. Most of the bracelets were from men from Virginia, North Carolina and Maryland. Then, I found one from Neptune Beach, FL. It seemed everything called me to this particular bracelet -- Thomas Dunlop was from Neptune Beach -- a small city that is for all intents and purposes part of Jacksonville. He disappeared in my birth year and his name was Thomas E. which was the first name and middle initial of my grandfather. I wore the bracelet for several months until it began to get weak. Recently, I went to DC again as a two day stop-over on a larger vacation. All I wanted to do was go to the Wall and get a rubbing of Thomas's name. Unfortunately, by the time we made it to the Wall, it was pouring rain. I went through the rain to find his name and succeeded. Obviously making a rubbing was impossible and it was raining too hard to take a picture, but I knelt there beside his name and traced it with my fingers.

It's a bit odd, I think, the instant connection I felt with this man who I never met. With all the bracelets in that box that day, I sometimes wonder why my hand fell on that particular one and why there were so many factors that matched him with me. I think about him and wonder what his life was about and did he have a wife and children and where are they now. My father was in the Navy on the Saratoga during the war, but was never on land. I never knew anyone who had been in the war, so I had no connection to it until I began wearing this man's name around my wrist.

Thomas Earl Dunlop disappeared fighting for our freedom because he believed in something -- our country and our freedom -- enough that it did not matter that his ending may not be a happy one. Thank you, Thomas. And I want to thank the Dunlop family who sacrificed their husband, their father, their son, their brother, their uncle, their cousin.

I hope that if a member of the Dunlop family, or someone who knew Thomas, reads this they might respond to me and tell me a bit about him. I would like to know.
