Birthday Remembrance

Remembering you today on your date of birth. I still wear my POW/MIA bracelet in your honor every day. Got it when I was just a kid. Had hopes of some day meeting you. Maybe on the other side. Thank you for your sacrifice & service. RIP LTJG Lee Benson

Lee Bensen's Nephew

I'm Lee's nephew; my mother was his sister Joyce, and I grew up in the same household as Lee with my grandparents and my mom until he went in the Navy. I still very vividly remember watching the Casualty Officer walk up the pathway to our front door to inform us his plane had gone done in the Gulf of Tonkin and he was MIA. I was seven. I also have letters so many of you sent that wore his POW-MIA bracelet and I can't tell you how much our family appreciated your outpouring of love and faith. I've had the opportunity to meet the families of Cmdr. Donald Hubbs, Randall Barber and Thomas Nightingale and they are wonderful people who are also deeply moved by remembrances of their loved ones. Anyone wishing more info on Lee is free to reach out to me at gregestes5 at yahoo dot com.

Remembered still

I was born in San Mateo, CA, your hometown. I wore your POW-MIA bracelet for decades until one day it disappeared. I still carry a copy of your photograph in my wallet. Thank you for your service and sacrifice.
