Lt. Col. Hobart Wallace, Jr

I never forgot your name, I was only 13 when the war ended, but I had already worn your POW-MIA bracelet for a couple of years. When the war ended, we were instructed to listen to the names of the released POW's, when your guy was released, you were to send in the bracelet to melt down into a statute. I sat by the TV day after day listening, I never heard your name, I still have your bracelet. It took me 42 years to find you. You will never know how much you meant to that young girl who was so confused by the Vietnam War. I had always hoped that I had just missed your name and that you went on to live a beautiful life. With deep regret, I can finally say R.I.P., Lt. Col. Hobart Wallace, Jr. Your name has been imbedded in my memory for most of my life.

Never Forgotten

I too wore LTC Wallace's MIA bracelet in high school. That was 40 years ago and I've never forgotten his name. While I'm sorry that he was killed in action, I'm glad to learn that he was returned to his country and his family.
Rest in peace.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear LTC Hobart Mckinley Wallace 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, Sir

Curt Carter
