Rest in peace Brothe

This morning I rummaged through some old 82nd Airborne military stuff of mine from 1972-74 and found the MIA bracelet I wore with your name on it. Want to let you know sir you are not forgotten.

Old thoughts revisited

I hadn't thought of Col Zook for a long time, but I wanted you to know that I still have a POW/MIA bracelet that I purchased sometime after I returned from my military duty in 1971. I was a Vienamese linguist/interpreter/interrogator who for whatever weird reason never got to serve overseas. My bracelet purchase allowed me to connect with someone who did serve, but did not come home. I may not have ever known Harold personally, but I feel that I have known him for a very long time. My sympathies to his family members - I trust you as proud of his service as I am.

A child wearing a POW/MIA bracelet

I was nine when my older sister found out about the bracelet program. Our dad was a retired Air Force Lt. Col. and we both felt strongly about honoring our soldiers. I remember looking at my bracelet often and wondering where my soldier was. I etched your name when we went to the Viet Nam Vet Memorial in DC. It was very powerful to see all the names of the young men and women who gave their lives for our way of life. Today I was privileged to visit the Viet Nam Vets Memorial in Angel Fire, NM where they have done such a wonderful job of remembering, in a very personal way, so many of our POW/MIAs. I found his picture and this remembrance online there. I am so thankful to you, Capt. Zook, for serving our country. Even though I never met you, I will never forget you.

Not Forgetten

This is in remembrance of Major Harold J. Zook. I wore an M.I.A. bracelet with your name on it. It was totally random that I had the honor of wearing your name as a representative for all the M.I.A and P.O.W. soldiers. I always kept it on, to remember to pray for you and the other soldiers. I happened to be shopping one day at the Colonial Park Mall in Harrisburg, Pa. There was a stand set up, and and older couple were there. That couple I learned were your parents! I walked up and I told them I had your bracelet. They were kind enough to tell me of your story.. Your mother told me that you were on a volunteer mission (actually your 3rd). She said you were in a helicopter and were shot down in enemy territory, and never seen or heard from again. She gave me a picture of you, a head shot in your uniform, and wrote some things on the back of the picture. And I thought, what extraordinary parents you had, to go to the lengths they did, to make sure their son, and all the other M.I.A soldiers would not be forgotten any time soon. I had the greatest respect for you... for serving your country on those 3 missions. You didn't have to do it, but you did. The bracelet is long gone. I buried it in the back yard of my house so that maybe one day someone would find it. But as this Memorial Day draws to a close, I still pause to honor and thank you . And thanks to your wonderful parents for raising such a great son. I am 57 now, and you are not forgotten.

My brother shared a house with him when they were stationed at Otis AFB on Cape Cod. I met Hal while on vacation to visit my brother. My brother was on duty so Hal showed us around the Cape and was so friendly easy going and funny. I will never forget how kind he was to my family,.He remains in my pryares for as long as I live.
