MY HERO

My name is Cathy. This is my big brother, my hero. Mike was born in Trinidad, West Indies. He became a US citizen for the sole purpose of fighting for this country. He loved his family, my other brother and my sister. He was fierclely patriotic! He was 16 years older than me. Thank you for remembering and honoring him! Sorry, I only just found this page today. I'm happy to answer any questions on this page. Blessings to you all, and Happy Labor Day!

My Hero

My name is Cathy and this is my hero. My brother. I just found this page today. Please know that I appreciate how you remember and honor Mike. I will try to answer questions here on this page, when I can. Mike was 26 when he was shot down. I was 10. We had lived in Naperville, IL. For the person from Downers Grove, I remember it well. Anyway, Mike was born in Trinidad, West Indies, as were my Mum and sister. From the time he was little, he wanted to be a pilot. He loved his family fiercely, and also the fiance he left behind. He was a career officer and this was his 2nd tour of duty. He sent us a letter that if he died he wanted to go in a blaze of glory. That is exactly what he did. He became an American citizen in 1964 and LOVED this country!!!

Wearing your Bracelet for 50 years...

Thank you for your service. I still wear your POW bracelet 24/7 and have for over 50 years. It reminds me of the brutality of war and of the ultimate sacrifice some have made for me. Thank you.

Thank You

Dear LCDR Michael Dunn,
Thank you for your service as an Unrestricted Line Officer (Naval Flight Officer) Pilot from the U.S.S. RANGER. I read you were identified in 1999. Welcome Home.
Independence Day is approaching, and we remember your sacrifice. We remember all you who gave their all. It has been too long, and it's about time 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 strength, courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.
