You are not forgotten

As an elementary student I sent for a POW/MIA bracelet and received the bracelet with Capt. Holton's name. I wore it for several years and have kept it these 40 + years. I have started wearing it again during the month of January . His service and sacrifice has not been forgotten. Thank you Captain Holton.

In honor of Capt Robert E. Holton

I started wearing this POW bracelet in 1973 & waited anxiously as all the POW's were released to see the name of Capt Robert E Holton, USAF. It was not to be. I wore it till it broke in two, then wore it taped together for several years till I ordered a new one 20 years ago. I was finally able to put it away, when his remains were found in 2009. I will NEVER forget & am glad to finally see a picture of him. This is a great project, the Vietnam Memorial was extremely hard to see, but giving faces to all these names is priceless. CAPT Holton, you will never be forgotten!

Remembering An American Hero

Dear Captain Robert Edwin Holton, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter

Kindred Spirits

When I was 18 I ordered an MIA bracelet to be worn until you come home. Your name was on it and I have diligently worn your name around my wrist in memory of your sacrifice and the sacrifice of your family. Over the years I have been blessed to meet people who knew you and your family. You are part of my healing as I lost my dad, Hal K. Henderson 1st Lt. USAF, August 2, 1969. I am connected to you although we never knew each other. Thank you for believing in the same things my father did and fighting for our freedom. I will forever and always wear your name around my wrist until the day your family can put you to rest. Forever and always kindred spirits.
