Thinking of you

Our family all had random POW bracelets. Mine was Lt Col William J Thompson--Missing 08/01/1968--the date of my 10th birthday. I too wore my bracelet until all of finish came off and I developed a rash. The wall came to my community this past weekend. I lost an uncle in Vietnam. I had visited the wall approx. 25 years ago with my father but wanted to go again. Along with finding my uncles name I also found Col Thompson's name. My uncle was sent back home to his family, Col Thompson was not. My thoughts go out to his family.

My son Preston chose to honor Col. Thompson at the State Fair of Texas

My family and I visited the State Fair of Texas. We had no family that served in this war. The kind veteran serving as a guide provided my sonbwith a flag tonhang next to the to the soldier if his choice. Preston chose Col. William James Thompson. It is difficult to explain war to an 8 year old, but I am determined to teach my children that our freedom is not free. We are very thankful to the veterans who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.
