We honor your life and your memory on this Memorial day, and hope that you will be brough home.

Memorial Day 2021

This year, as every year for many, my wife finishes the wreaths she makes for every Memorial Day and our American flag is raised in remembrance, as we observe this somber national holiday. You and our loved ones whose names also are inscribed on the Vietnam Memorial are in our hearts. My family and I will never forget the cost of our freedoms, and the men and women who have and continue to step forward to keep America safe.
With respect, always.

I too wore your bracelet

Captain Long,
Today is Memorial Day 2021. I received your bracelet on my 10th birthday on October 16, 1969 in San Antonio, Texas. Though an “Army Brat” I grew up in a heavy Air Force city. My father, upon picking your bracelet for me picked it because the date of your MIA was so close to my birthday. He said we must never forget those who gave their all for our freedom.
I remember writing to and receiving a letter from your dear mother. Every time I’ve visited D.C. I’ve visited the memorial and lifted prayers for you. Every Memorial Day I stop to remember you. Now a grandmother, when my grands are old enough. I will share your story. One day sir when God calls me home my prayer is that we will meet again so I can thank you. May God Bless your soul.

honoring you as memorial day approaches...

Thank you for your service to our country so long ago sir. The remembrance from Christopher Knob is especially poignant. It remains my fervent hope you will be returned home.
