I have your bracelet
Final Mission of MAJ Howard D. Stephenson
Remembering your service to our country at a most difficult time
I came across the MIA bracelet I wore for many years, beginning in 1973 and until I had to take it off for work (as a surgical nurse). I have kept it all these years and finally found this site, and have a chance to get "the rest of the story". I did go to the Vietam War Memorial in DC, but couldn't find his name. Now I'm glad to know he's at rest in Arlington.
Thank you, and all those who watched over us so well in those dark days.
Remembering an American Hero
Dear LTC Howard David Stephenson, sir
As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for the ultimate sacrifice that you 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. And please know that men and women like you have stepped forward to defend our country yet again, showing the same love for country and their fellow Americans that you did- you would be proud.
With respect, and the best salute that a civilian can muster for you.
Curt Carter (son of Sgt Ardon William Carter, 101st Airborne, February 4, 1966, South Vietnam)
