American Hero still remembered

As a young man in collage during the war, I proudly supported the troops. I wore Capt. Bogard's bracelet and prayed for him and his family. On a recent trip to DC I visited the wall and was moved to tears with the great sacrifice that was made for our country. Thank you.
I continue to pray for this family today and hope someday they will have the answers they are looking for.

Stiil Wearing my Bracelet

I was in 7th grade in 72-73 and the thing for us girls to do was to donate to POW/MIA concern and receive a bracelet. Mine had Capt. Bogard's name. We could send letters to the famiily in care of the charity, which I did a number of times - always receiving a note back. I STILL WEAR THAT BRACELET! It is in it's 4th decade and still readable. I never take it off and wore it at my wedding and births of my children. If remains are found, then I will remove it. Praying for that to happen....

CRASH SITE TO BE EXCAVATED

On April 16, 2016, representative family members of Lonnie Pat Bogard and William H. Ostermeyer were told by officials of the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency that their missing F4-D Phantom jet is scheduled to be excavated Aug/Sept 2016. The site is located in central western Vietnam. The men disappeared on a night mission 44 years ago. The families are guardedly hopeful that remains will be found and returned home. We love you, remember you, and have never forgotten you. God speed to all.

He is with me in spirit...

I was very young when I wore a bracelet with the name Capt. Lonnie Pat Bogard on it.
I am now 53 years old with a 21 year daughter. I've told her many times how proud I was to wear his bracelet.
Although I never met Capt. Lonnie Pat Bogard he has popped into my head more times than I can count throughout the years.
I say he is with me in spirit because once again he came to mind completely out of the blue. Thanks to technology I was able to search his name and find out what a truly amazing man he was.
I'm looking forward to keeping his memory alive by sharing this information with my daughter.
I can honestly say he is forever in my heart.

F4D crew chief 66-8799

I was the crew chief who launched Capt Bogard on the mission the night that he was lost, it was the first time that I had met him but I have never forgot him. RIP sir, I salute you.
