A follow up from 2002

I posted a remembrance back in 2002 about wearing Alan's POW/MIA braclet I picked up from a veterans conference. I had lost it years ago in the ocean at the Outter Banks in North Carolina. I picked his name out because we both were paratroopers. I just read where his remains were found and he is being buried at Arlington. Welcome home brother and A/ATW. I'm so happy that you've been found. Now your family can have closure.

Answered Prayers March 2016

It is with a grateful heart that I share news of repatriation of Alan's remains from Laos & identification after 47 years, 11 months & 7 days. He will be buried with full military honors at Arlington National Cemetery on June 22, 2016.I extend my heartfelt thanks to everyone who helped in this accounting process over the years, & who continue to pursue the fullest possible accounting for all POWs/MIAs--especially the National League of POW/MIA Families & DPAA. Please remember the thousands of POWs/MIAs who remain unaccounted for. Their families still wait for answers.

SFC Alan L. Boyer - remains found and identified....

It has been so long since you disappeared in a far away lush jungle. Your sister, Judy, has just this week shared that she has learned this month
(March 2016) that bone fragments found so very far away have positively been identified as yours, Al. So sad to know you no longer walk with us, but you
are coming home. Your family and friends have some sort of relief that
we now know something of your mission MIA outcome. So much more
to know but know we care and always will. You will be honored with
a place among your comrades in Arlington National Cemetery. For those of us who are aging and past our prime, we recognize you for all you have done
and sacrificed in the prime of your all together too short life. Thanks, Al.

Brother Al

I remember well....University of Montana, Theta Chi Fraternity, we met, we became
fraternity brothers. Good man. Good friend. I graduated in Spring 1966. Al
did what a lot of us didn't, he joined the Army. Reading the information over the
years that has been posted on this and other sites, I have come to admire, respect and honor his life and the service he gave to his Nation, our country, his family,
our families. His Army training must have been rigorous, to say the very least.
His sweat and tears and perhaps his blood along with his energy must have
been spent in the exhaustive route from enlistment through boot camp, advanced
training, and more than I can imagine. Determination? Dedication? Persistent?
Who knows what drove him down the path he took. Maybe love?

Al, I have your photo. I have your MIA bracelet that was given to me by a loyal and loving Brother in Theta Chi. I have a rubbing of your name from The
Wall. I have photos of your name on the Traveling Wall when it came to
Whitefish. I have the university yearbooks with our fraternity photos.

Brother Al, I wish you would come back, aged like me, not looking like the
22 year olds we once were, but strong, full of life, honest and sincere.as I
know you to be.

We remember you, Al. We cannot, we shall not forget your life or your sacrifice.
Thank you. Thank all of your comrades in arms for keeping us safe, protecting our way of life, so many lives lost so very far away. Should you not come back
in Earthly form, we shall clasp hands again in time. A hug, a cheer, sing the
Theta Chi songs, and Up With Montana Boys....maybe a beer, a long chat with friends and brothers.

Thank you, Al. A thanks to your family and friends for their suffering and dedication to your memory. Help us not to forget. Help us to do what we can and should do to serve, protect and honor our Nation and your memory.

Alas, Al, you were taken too early, your life cut short of your dreams, aspirations,
hopes, your loves, your potentials. We are sad but we are grateful for your life and your presence among us. Even those who never met you, whose names
and words dwell here, sense a loss in so many ways. Well done, Alan L. Boyer.

Peace be with you, now and always. May God hold you in His arms and bless you and yours. We will meet again. In Jesus name, Amen.
