Remembering an American Hero

Dear 1LT Gerald Francis Kinsman, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for the ultimate sacrifice that you 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. And please know that men and women like you have stepped forward to defend our country yet again, showing the same love for country and their fellow Americans that you did- you would be proud.

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

Curt Carter

Bracelet

I purchased your POW MIA bracelet when I was in the 8th grade (1989) and wore it daily for several years. Thank You for your service.

I wear 1Lt. Gerald F. Kinsman, MIA Bracelet

I wear 1Lt. Gerald F. Kinsman, MIA Bracelet. I was given his bracelet by a co-worker of mine. She wore the MIA braclet for over 20+ years, when I met her and she found out I was a daughter of a MIA also. She handed me her MIA bracelet and said, "you need to take care of this for me"! In tears we both hugged and I said, "I'll be happy to take care of his MIA bracelet for you"!

God Bless Gerald and his family and all who loved him.

I have your POW/MIA bracelet.

It has your rank, name, service affiliation, date and region where you went missing and state you were born imprinted on it. I visited "The Wall" in Washington, DC before obtaining it and just recently, I visited the "Wall that Heals" in Boylston, MA. It is ironic that the date you went missing was my 6th wedding anniversary date. You were just 3 years younger than I. One of my co-workers showed me the web site to go to and the scenario of what happened to you. As long as I have your bracelet, you will be remembered by me. I would like to pass it on someday to your family. I believe that would not only please you, but them as well.
God bless you. Your spirit lives.
