His Bracelet

My dad, also in the Air Force one evening in 1970, when we lived in the Philippines (Clark AFB) brought home six bracelets for everyone in our family... my bracelet was Robert Panek, Sr. I have had the bracelet since 1970 and visited Wash. DC Memorial Wall. He has never left my memory. I have a special file on him...glad to know, I wasn't the only person. Always in my heart. Laura

Thank You

Dear LTC Robert Panek, Thank you for your service as an Electronic Warfare Officer. I am glad you were identified in 1988. Welcome home. Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart. It is Lent, and the last day of winter. Time passes quickly. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness, especially now. Rest in peace with the angels.

LT. COL Robert Panek Sr.

I have had Lt. Col. Panek's POW/MIA bracelet since 7th grade. I am now 60. About 10 years ago I purchased a newer bracelet with his upgraded rank and status. I will never take it off. I am forever grateful for his service and his families sacrifice. My son is soon to be promoted to Major university the USAF. Last spring I visited the Viet Nam memorial in D.C. and got a picture of his name on the wall. I never knew him but he lives in my heart and on my wrist every day.
