ALWAYS MY HERO

I never met you but I have known you. When I was about 8 I BOUGHT a pow bracelet with your name on it, from that moment on you were special. I wondered what you looked like what you cared about and if I would ever meet you. You were my show n tell a clue times at school,how proud I was to do what I thought was a greAt thing. YOU WERE THE ONE DOING THE GREAT THING. I wore the bracelet until it was thin. I visit the wall and I have always left powers and letters for my hero and friend. I have done that .any times.I stand at panel 40w and stare at line 13 and know from heaven you are there with me. A few weeks ago the traveling wall was in Grove City and my home in Pa. Again as so.many times in DC I have left yellow roses and a letter for my hero and very old friend

Remembering An American Hero

Dear LCDR Kenneth Keith Knabb Jr, 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

You're not forgotten

I came across my POW/MIA bracelet that bears your name while sorting through a box of items from the 60s and 70s. I've always wondered about your fate. I'm glad I was finally able to connect a face with your name.

Part of my life

I never knew you, but you've been a part of my life for, around, 40 years, as a name on a silver bracelet. You've moved with me from house to house, state to state as I've grown up. This is the first picture I've seen of you. I've wanted your family to have the bracelet, but no luck.
