THINK OF YOU OFTEN

SINCE THE AGE OF 18 YOUR NAME HAS BEEN WITH ME THROUGH THE MIA/POW BRACELET THAT I BOUGHT. I SUPPORTED THE ARMED FORCES THEN AS I DO NOW AT THE AGE OF 50. I ONLY HOPE YOUR FAMILY IS AS PROUD OF YOU AS I HAVE BEEN ALL THESE YEARS. TO A FELLOW ILLINOISIAN "THANK YOU FOR GIVING YOUR LIFE SO WE COULD REMAIN FREE".

If I should die...remembrances for LTCOL. Robert Joseph PANEK, SR,USAF...who died so we may live!!!!

If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.

Note to family

I'm sending you this note to let you know I have been wearing Maj. Panek's bracelet since 1971-I am visiting my daughter in
Michigan and my grandson told me of the web site. He found out so much information for me,and I just wanted to let his family know I have have been praying for him all these years, and hoping he might be still alive, but God seen fit to take him home. The only thing from reading about him is hopefully he didn't suffer in the hands of the enemy. I only had to remove the braclet two times in all the years because of a hospital stay and I gave them a hard time because I always thought if I never took it off he would be safe. I will still continue to wear it. God Bless.

I served in Viet Nam at the time you were shot down, I never knew you but I've carried your silver MIA bracelet since around 1975 or so, I feel as though I know you friend.
