Thank You

Dear Cap. William Powell, Thank you for your service as a Tactical Aircraft Pilot. Glad you were identified in 1988. Welcome home. Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart. Flag Day is soon. Time passes quickly. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness, especially now. Rest in peace with the angels.

As a kid in the 1970s, I wore the POW/MIA bracelet with your name on it

I think it broke in half at some point in time, and I didn't hang onto the pieces. While I'm sorry to just learn in 2020 about your premature demise, I'm glad your family stateside may've had some closure with the return of your remains almost 20 years ago. I thank you for your service and sacrifice.

Memory Remains

Often it's been said that nothing is ever really lost with our remembrance; so it is with this young pilot, William Elmo Powell,
who perished 08/17/1968.
Next year will score fifty years since William's departure from family, relatives, friends.
I too was a pilot in SEA. I never met William. I'm just one who happened to pass-by today.
Moments seem to always bloom more magnificently with treasured
thoughts as each season passes.
God Bless his family, relatives, friends, and love-ones.

Thank You

I also have a Pow/Mia bracelet engraved with your name. I searched the newspaper / TV for your name when the men and women came home, but never saw it. We actually saw the soldier who was on my mothers bracelet walk off the plane. She removed her bracelet then. I still have yours and wear it to this day. I have to explain to the younger adults and children why I wear a bracelet with your name on it. I have visited the wall in Washington and have a etching of your name also. You gave the ultimate sacrifice and I thank you for that. Your in a much better place now, God Bless You and keep you close.
