Thank You For Your Service

Just yesterday, Veteran's Day, I was thinking about the POWMIA bracelet I had worn forever in high school and college. I checked the internet for Lt. Col. W.N. 'Newk' Grubb and happened upon this site. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that others have worn the same bracelet.


I also came across a very nice article (url below) written by one of his childhood friends. His story is heartwarming, and made me very proud to have worn his bracelet. I felt like I had finally met Col. Grubb, or 'Nugie' as his friend called him.


I was also quite impressed by his Mother's fierce passion to discover the truth, and her activism in pushing the government for answers. She seemed quite a spirited lady.


My Dad was USAF, a pilot, and spent three tours over SE Asia. He gave me your bracelet, and every night I prayed for his and your safe return. Dad lost his battle with cancer in 2003; I imagine that you and my Dad, Col. Lewis U. Green, have some stories to share.


'Since the first fallen Minuteman stained Lexington Green with patriot's blood 235 years ago, hundreds of thousands have followed in service. Over the centuries, their uniforms and names have changed but their patriotism and bravery have remained the envy of kings and the scourge of our enemies.' We deeply appreciate your courage and service to our country. God bless you all.

Thank You... Lt. Col. Newk Grubb

I decided to search for Lt. Col. Newk Grubb. I wore his MIAPOW bracelet in the mid seventies for many years and was never removed it until the day of my wedding in 1980. I wore it with a pride for my country and for him and our solders. I always wondered about him and his family. I wanted you to know I thought about him many many times over the years and especially on Veterans Day. My heart goes out to every family and veteran on this Veterans Day 2010.
