REMEMBRANCES

LEFT FOR LUTHER LEE ROSE
POSTED ON 11.11.2003

I Remember

I was born in 1969. I was in high school when I got Luther's MIA braclet.

I have tried to find his family a couple of times to return the braclet and let them know, someone other than his his family was thinking of him all these years. Someone who never met him, wasn't even born yet, was still praying for him, shed tears for a man that gave his life so I could live mine.

Thank you,
Gwen

Not Forgotten

I have not forgotten you. I chair the Adoption Committee for The National League of Families of Prisoners of War and Missing in Action in Southeast Asia. We will always remember the 1,889 Americans still unaccounted for in Southeast Asia and the thousands of others that lost their lives. We will not stop our efforts until all of you are home where you belong.

We need to reach the next generation so that they will carry on when our generation is no longer able. To do so, we are attempting to locate photographs of all the missing. If you are reading this remembrance and have a photo and/or memory of this missing American that you would like to share for our project, please contact me at:

Comments about a true friend

I am Robert L. Gallup, Retired USAF, E-9, I worked with Luther for many years at Amarillo AFB, Tx. We were both S/SGTS at the time and worked in the Avionics Squadron repairing the Defensive Fire Control Systems on B-52 aircraft. Not only did we worked together we also rode to and from work together as we, and are families, all lived in a trailer park north of Amarillo, called Cherry Avenue trailer park. Luther was very proud of his car, a classic at the time, a Studebaker Hawk. One year Luther attended the NCO academy at Cannon AFB, NM. I went to the graduation and on our return back to Amarillo a New Mexico highway patrolman pulled us over and gave Luther a ticket. We then had to follow him to the local Justice of the Peace to pay our $67 fine before we could go on our way. Their was three of us (can't remember who the other one was) and that is all we could do to scrounge up that much money. I really believe to this day that the highway patrolman and the JP split the money.
Luther was a true loyal friend and I was aware when his aircraft was shot down and, as all his friends and relatives, we all hoped he would be one of the POW's returned after the war. I can be contacted at [email protected] and presently live in Florida but I think of Luther often. If anyone knows of his family I would sure like to get in touch with one of his children. Thanks for letting me expound on Luther it is a great pleasure.
