I wore his MIA/POW bracelet.

I just came across the bracelet I wore years ago. I was a teenager during the Vietnam War. I have looked on line several times and was very pleased to hear that he has finally come home. I have prayed for his family for many years.

Remembering Colonel William E. Campbell

My emotions are enflamed today on discovery that the remains of Col. William E. Campbell were recovered from Laos in May of this year and buried in Arlington Cemetery on my birthday.

I was the assigned crew chief and the last person to talk face to face with (Major) Col. Campbell (in 1969) as I assisted strapping him into his cockpit while chatting about the night's mission. He made the ground crew feel like an integral part of the team. Col. Campbell had a calm manner about him and the confidence of an experienced combat fighter pilot. I was also on the recovery team when his wingman Col Fletcher returned to the 497th flight line later that night.

I have remembered Col. Campbell in my thoughts and prayers since that night because his character and demeanor made such an impression on this young sergeant. I am so relieved, after all these years. Despite continuing to feel the sense of loss, I feel great joy that his remains were recovered and returned to his family. All the glory to God.
