Remembering An American Hero

Dear LTC Robert Joseph Panek Sr, 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

Note to Family

I too have had his P.O.W. bracelet since 1971. For my 13th Birthday I begged my Mother to order one for me and have always considered it one of my most prized possessions. It never occurred to me that there were multiple ones made for each Service Member so I always thought of myself as it's official caretaker! I came across it yesterday and thought I'd see what info I could find about him through Google and found it a bitter-sweet ending that his remains are finally with his family. May he rest in peace and I hope you find comfort in the fact that he affected so many people he never even met!


I would happily send my bracelet to any family member who requests it...

Still remember

I also wore your bracelet. Got it when I was 11 in 1971. All these years I have felt like you were a family member.
