MIA Bracelet

I never knew you, but I have a red MIA bracelet with your name on it. I received it in the late 80's and have kept it safe all these years. Thank you for the service to our country.

My cousin Billy

Billy: Not a day goes my that I do not think of you and what could have been...The hurt is just as raw as it was in 1968 when we got the news of your missing. I was able to go to your funeral when your "remains" were sent back. Seeing your son Bill, sister Linda and your mother, my Aunt Eloise was wonderful and painful at the same time. You were a true Southern gentleman with a great sense of humor! You got your love of flying from daddy....your Uncle Chuck. People who did not know you will never realize just how handsome you were....inside and out. I love you Billy.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear CWO William Arthur Smith Jr, 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

Curt Carter
