Robert Zukowski

Bob Zukowski and I were assigned to the same fighter squadron, 34th Tactical Fighter Squadron at Korat AB, Thailand. Bob was aircrew and I was a crew chief, maintenace person who kept our guys flying. We had deployed to Takhli Air Base Thailand to continue flying our bombing missions when Bob was shot down and listed as MIA (Missing IN Action) until his remains were recovered and identified. Ironically, my nephew named Bill Grant, who is a forensic anthropologist and works for the government, was on a mission in Laos that found Bob's remains. RIP Bob you were a great aviator and friend.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear Major Robert John Zukowski, 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, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter

I have been wearing the MIA bracelet for Major Robert J Zukowski

I have had the honor of wearing a MIA bracelet for Major Robert J Zukowski for the last 24 years. I have learned that the remains of this hero were found and returned to his family. I would love to send this bracelet to his family and let them know how honored I have been to wear it. While I never had the privilege of knowing Major Zukowski in life, it meant a lot to me to be the one to wear this MIA bracelet for him.
He is my hero.
Rest in Peace Major

If I should die...remembrances for MAJ. Robert John ZUKOWSKI, USAF...who made the ultimate sacrifice

If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not likme others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.
