Not Forgotten

I have not forgotten you. I chair the Adoption Committee for The National League of Families of Prisoners of War and Missing in Action in Southeast Asia. We will always remember the 1,889 Americans still unaccounted for in Southeast Asia and the thousands of others that lost their lives. We will not stop our efforts until all of you are home where you belong.

We need to reach the next generation so that they will carry on when our generation is no longer able. To do so, we are attempting to locate photographs of all the missing. If you are reading this remembrance and have a photo and/or memory of this missing American that you would like to share for our project, please contact me at:

john wayne held

my name is Michael Held. I dont think i am related to his family. I was doing a project for school and i came across his name. I would like to thank John Held for defending Democracy against the communist enemy, in spite of the unfounded opposition to the war. I hope to become an air force pilot. I just want to say that POW/MIA in Vietnam are not forgotten, even in the younger generation of 2002.

If I should die...remembrances for LTCOL. John Wayne "Duke" HELD, USAF...Indy's bravest hero, who died so that freedom and justice may live!!!!!!!...HE WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.
