Thank You

Dear LTC William Potter, Thank you for your service as a Navigator. Glad you were identified in 1995. Welcome home. Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart. Sunday was the 77th anniversary of D-Day, Operation Overlord. Time passes quickly. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness, especially now. Rest in peace with the angels.

I wore his pow/Mia bracelet, too.

I was a high school girl who was against the war but knew these men and families deserved some recognition. I wore his bracelets until we thought all came home, that could get home. If any of his family members want the bracelet, I will be glad to pass along. If not, it will be my honor to continue to cherish this piece of history.

I hope my Mom meets him in heaven

I remember my mother wearing his bracelet for years. I was in my early teens at the time. I recall the first time I visited the wall I found his name and made a rubbing for my Mom. She was so happy to have that. I think it made her feel closer to him. Some years later i took her to the Wall and she just sat, touched his name and cried. For her it was like meeting a lost family member. To this day, I still go see his name whenever I go to DC. I remember how much it meant to my Mom to visit that very place. I too feel like he is family. Thank you Col Potter, I never knew you.... but you have been a part of my life for many years. Your sacrifice is not forgotten.
