My brother I never met

Back in the seventies I go an mia bracelet with Ron name on it. Throughout the year the bracelet plain wore out. I promised I'd never forget, so I meeting part of me he became my brother and I remembered him everyday since then to this day now. I call the legion Post in Posen Illinois trying to be sure he was always remembered. I had a chance to meet his sister and his family that was left they had dedicated a street to Ronald and Posen. I will always miss him till my dying days in my last breath to my brother.

Ron's 1966 Birthday Party at Ed's Old Times Tavern 111th St Chicago, IL

Ron was flipping a quarter for who paid for the next pitcher of beer. My girl friend and I sat down across the room. Our pitcher of beer was served to our table. Before I could pour, Ron approached looking for his flipped quarter. A Fan blade over his head, propelled it across the room & into our pitcher of beer. He asked for his quarter. I countered his request for a new pitcher of beer, and we talked details of goings on. He was on his birthday goodbye party as he was leaving soon for AOCS in Quantico. "Oh yeah so am I." We then became friends throughout Naval Air Training and in Aug 1968 assigned to the same 'Scarface' Huey Squadron in Hue/Phu Bai. I was transferred to 'Swift' CH-46 Squadron. Ron flew gun cover along with our Missions. Ron's KIA is still with me as is his 7/21/45 70th Birthday.
Semper Fidelis,

My POW/MIA bracelet

In May of 1987, the Vietnow parade came through town. I wanted a bracelet of a service member who had a date near the day I was born. I picked the bracelet of 1LT Ronald J. Janousek, and have now worn it daily for 30 years. My first one broke, and I retired it at the traveling Vietnam memorial, to be placed in Washington. I ordered a second one with the same information. It broke, and I have it so I can personally retire it when I visit the memorial myself in Washington. When the second one was ordered, I also ordered a stainless one. Since the second one broke, I have worn the stainless one. The etching is there, though wearing thin. I rub the etching for comfort, for strength, and for support.

Though I never met LT Janousek personally, I feel as if I have known him for 30 years. As today is POW/MIA Remembrance Day, I wanted to share this story in honor of him. If his family sees this, I would like for you to have the bracelet when I retire it and replace it with one that is freshly etched. Please contact me.
