I will Never Forget

Dear SSG Humberto Acosta-Rosario, I received your MIA bracelet in January, 2018. I will always wear it and if I can, I will ask my son now serving to continue to wear it when God calls me to be with Him. It is not by accident that I wear your bracelet. I started looking for MIA/POWs from Puerto Rico and I found you. Today (2/3/2018) I read all seven pages of messages and now I am writing you another one. Dear Boricua, you are not forgotten. I pray for you and your family at night. I am also a soldier(retired now) and hope that we can meet in Heaven. Rest in peace fellow soldier.

I bought this bracelet, out of all the others,because it spoke the loudest to me.It said, I'm here don't leave with out me! We need each other,and at that moment I realized how lost i was. And now as I read his bio, i know what he was trying to tell me. We need to be remembered. And I do.

DEAR STAFF SERGEANT ACOSTA,

I DID NOT WEAR YOUR BRACELET, I WORE A DIFFERENT ONE.

IT KILLS ME THAT YOUR REMAINS WERE NEVER FOUND, BUT I HAVE HOPE THAT YOU WILL BE RETURNED TO YOUR HOME.

REST IN PEACE. YOU HAVE EARNED IT.

Remembering all those who have not come home.

Spec.4 Humberto Acosta Rosario,
I only came to know you when I received the POW-MIA bracelet that I had ordered sometime after I was discharged from the U.S. Army (1969-1971) I've worn my bracelet everyday since 1971. I was 21 years old at the time and am now 66. So I have had this bracelet for quite some time and prayed for you and the others that have not come home.You have become a part of my life. The I remember the first time I had to remove the bracelet was going in for surgery and I explained to the surgeon and his staff that it was customary to never take the bracelet off. So they waited until they put me under to take the bracelet off and when I woke up in the recovery room the first thing I did was look at my wrist and there the bracelet was. I pray that sometime soon your family will have the honor of knowing your whereabouts and can honor you with a funeral service. May God's grace and love be upon your family.
