Never forget

I wore the Captain’s bracelet from 6th grade in 1973 through college when it broke. I still have it, along with this letter I received from his parents. Always in my prayers. I look for news of him online since I got my first computer in the late 1990s. A few years ago I learned his remains were found in Laos in 2011, where his plane was shot down in 1969. He was returned home to be buried in the national cemetery in Dallas Texas and was promoted to rank of Major. I am reminded every year st this time - Memorial Day - to never forget the freedoms I & all of us have did not come for free. Heavy prices were paid for democracy and freedom. He is still in my prayers and I hope his family has found peace and closure. This Memorial Day, and everyday, Thank you for your service.

POW/MIA Braclet

I wore his braclet for many years starting in 1969. I never knew very much about him til I volunteered at the moving wall to help people learn what happened to a vet in 1988. It was a very sad and somber day but very fulfilling.

Captain Robert Tucci

I was honored and privileged to wear his bracelet when I was in high school and a bit after that until I had to have surgery and they made me take it off. Luckily I kept it with me all those years and gave it to my daughter I think about 10 years ago!! God Bless Him!

Fond memories

I flew with Bob on his Pilot Training cross country. Excellent student. I also had supper with him in the O'Club at Udorn Thailand before he went out on his mission. I was the first reconnaissance flight the next morning looking for survivors. Unfortunately there were none. Very sad day for us.

the bracelet I wore

I remember getting my bracelet in the summer in our towns park. I was 12 years old and always wore it, till it broke after 8 years. I searched the newspapers in the MIA-POW section for years hoping to find news of his return (my father worked for a newspaper and he would bring these home for me to search.) I have always remembered him and wanted to know more. While visiting the wall in Bentonville Arkansas a volunteer helped to find his name and show me information to help bring closure. In reading about him he was a very special person. I will always remember his sacrifice for our freedom and keep his bracelet to tell my grandchildren when they grow older. He will always have a special place in my heart.
