Wore His Bracelet

I, too, had his name on my silver bracelet which I wore for many years. Oftentimes I’d Google his name but nothing popped, til today (I suppose I was misspelling his name. Ironic I found it now, on Memorial Day weekend). Seeing his picture and now knowing more, is stunning to me. Thank you for this site, allowing me to see the face of the person I admired for so long. And will continue to do so. G-d bless him and his family

Service buddies, both from Kansas

In 1960 I was a Crew Chief Mechanic on a USAF RB-47 aircraft. Ross was a Lieutenant and an Electronics Recon technician on my plane. Ross and I were both Hams radio operators. One day he came out for a flight and told me he would not see me again as he was going into flight training for fighters the next week. I never saw him again. We have seen his name on the wall and have his rubbing. Ross, you were a good man. I think of you often. Please let me salute you, Sir! RIP

Roscoe H Fobair
I have had Roscoe's bracelet since the late 1960's or 70's. On April 29, 2001 I read in the Eureka, CA Time Standard newspaper that his remains had been identified by a single tooth. I am giving the bracelet and the newspaper article to my son who teaches high school US History. I hope he can use it to show the sacrifice that individuals and their loved ones made and how much they lost during the Viet Nam war.

Always Remembered

I wore a bracelet of remembrance, for Major Fobair,all through high school and college. And, even though I no longer wear the bracelet on my wrist I still hold his memory in my heart.
