I too wore Captain Carter A Howell's MIA Bracelet

I just read a FB re-post about damage done to the wall in July 2016, which brought up the memory of the MIA bracelet I wore. In 1973, while a senior in high school, I requested a MIA bracelet and received one honoring this good man, Captain Carter A Howell. Years ago the bracelet was inadvertently lost while wearing. While I have found his name on The Wall, I never thought to look him up on the Internet until now. While it is an emotional moment 44 years later, I am happy to learn a bit more of you. Thank you Captain Howell for your service, and your family and friends who have posted here in remembrance.

Bracelet

I am a 58 year old woman who proudly wears his bracelet which I got while still in High School. I was able to track down his mother back before computers. We exchanged several letters. I was happy to see a picture of him on this sight. I am forever grateful for his sacrifice.

a Good Man

I was a fellow 69 graduate and M company friend with CA. We would play guitar together (badly) and sing (worse). I could never understand why he would jump out of perfectly good airplanes. I Do understand why he strapped a jet to his butt and went out to fight for his country. He was a Good Man

My Classmate

Carter (CA) and Inwere classmates in M Company while Citadel cadets. We were good friends and both on the Sport Parachute Team. I last saw him in November, 1970.
I was attending Pathfinder School at Fort Benning and he was finishing up flight school at Craig AFB, Selma, AL.

His unit flew support for us in the 101st Airborne Division.
I learned about his being lost from another Parachute Team member, Joe Brown, when I came back from RVN.
