i will never forget this name

my mother wore his bracelet for nearly thirty years until she gave it to me shortly before i joined the air force. there is a great deal of emotional attatchment to this name and now i have a face to put with it. i want everyone, most of all his family, that as long as there are people who remember him, and why he died, there will always be a home for him to come home to.

Though I've never met you you have always been with me. I met your mom and dad and cousin Jim.
Thanks

To Arts Family

I began a tour of duty with the 3rd Platoon, 183rd, in May of 1969, and the unit was still deeply committed to searching for Art. Throughout my year there, every effort was made to thoroughly examine every aircraft crash site, hoping to find evidence that he may have survived. I am truly sorry that news of Art has not turned up yet, and I pray that your family has found comfort over the years that his death was not in vain.
