I won’t forget.

I won’t forget.
I was 13 years old. He was an older gentleman selling POW bracelets by the Vietnam Memorial. I asked how much. He answered. I thanked him and left to catch up with my 8th grade class, knowing my mom would say no. Twenty minutes later, I heard someone shouting, “Little girl! Little girl in the skirt!” I turned and there he was, clutching a bracelet in his hand. He shoved it in my hand and said, “I know you’re a Christian. I want you to pray for him. I want you to remember him.” And I have. I wore that bracelet almost every day for 5 years. And today I found his name on the Vietnam Memorial.

Not Forgotten

I also have an MIA bracelet with your name on it. You are not forgotten. Thank you for your ultimate sacrifice. I would be happy to return the bracelet to a family member.

Never forgotten

I have your POW bracelet that I bought as a child when they were selling them in school. I have never forgotten you and I've been to both the travelling wall and the wall in DC to honor you. I remember searching for your name in the newspaper every time they would list the names of the soldiers that were found. Thank you for your service and the ultimate sacrifice. I will never forget you.

Charlie, My HS Buddy

Charlie and I worked together for three years during HS, at Greenbriar Hills CC, here in Kirkwood. He was the caddymaster and I ran the refreshment stand. We had many good times together after work. We went to different high schools (he to Eugene Coyle here in Kirkwood and I to Christian Brothers College HS in Clayton) and he was a year older - but we "doubled" a number of times.
We lost track after he graduated - it was only in 2014 that I found him via a Google search.
Sad.

Remembering an American Hero

Dear LCDR Charles Weldon Marik, 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
