My Brother-in-Law

My sister was married to Gil. I am touched by all the sweet remembrance that have been written. Gil was a very special guy. For those who did not know him, he was extremely intelligent yet just as humble. He was kind and treated my sister like a Princess. I ache for her to have gone 56 years without receiving his body back. She is in her 80's but looks and acts like early 70's or younger. Continue your prayers for I know God has a plan. Again I thank you for all the prayers. faithfulness and kind words.

honoring you.

Thank you for your service to our country so long ago sir. The remembrance from your wife Patsy is moving. I share her hope you will be returned home after the passage of so many years.

Honor of Lt. Gilbert Mitchell

While stationed at Selfridge AF base I bought a bracelet which bore the name of
Lt. Gilbert Mitchell 3-6-68. I prayed fervently for his return. I contacted Webmaster many years later to learn of his status. I received a report that he had indeed not
made it home and was listed as an MIA. When the Vietnam War Memorial was brought to my city, my husband (a Vietnam Vet) and I went to pay our respects. Lt. Mitchells name was engraved on the granite. I just cried and as I write this, I still cry. Thank you Lt Mitchell for the ultimate sacrifice. I will never forget you.

I wore your bracelet and prayed you would return.

I am 85 years old now and while going through items to decide which would I keep, I found the bracelet. I did look in the box many times during the years. I did check the military through the years hoping for good news. I just found your name on the Wall and my heart breaks all over again. I know you rest in peace, and I hope those family and friends that lost you had good memories to live with. Thank you doesn't seem good enough for this young warrior.
