I wore his bracelet
Final Mission of CAPT Lonnie P. Bogard
MIA Bracelet (Lonnie Pat Bogard)
I also wore the MIA Bracelet in the 1970's for Lonnie Pat Bogard. I certainly did pray for him and his family, and hoped I would meet him some day to thank him for his service. Today I thank his wife and family for his service and hope to thank him in Heaven!
Remembering an American Hero
Dear Major Lonnie Pat Bogard, sir
As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.
May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.
With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir
