We have not forgotten: 

Open Letters to Families of POW/MIAS

Although we have no way to personally contact the many family members of those still waiting to come home, whether in enemy hands, or God's hands, it is our hope that the families will find this site.

Many inquiring about the status of the Soldier, Sailor, Airman or Marine on their bracelet have asked how to write and tell the families they still care.  The contact by activist's with family members is extremely limited.  We also try to maintain their privacy and cause no further pain or grief.  

As we have had to state many times, the United States Government is the ONLY organization that holds a list of POW/MIA family members and their home addresses.

Perhaps fate will guide us all and this site will form a bond among all of us that wait - family and citizens alike.  It is our hope that the families will find these "love letters" and realize they are not alone - we have not forgotten.

PLEASE leave an e-mail address for a family member to respond to your message, should they choose to do so.  Also remember this is a public forum - your letters are open for all to read. If you change your email - please notify us!

When writing letters to families please use LOVELETTERS in the email subject area. We will post your letter as soon as possible.

Please think twice about offering to send a bracelet to the family if he is still missing! WEAR IT!

"IN MEMORY OF ME"

In memory of me wear this metal band, and hold my world close to thee.
Remember the dreams I dreamed, remember my laughter, school days & church bells.
Remember the good old days and pray that more will come for me.
For I am a prisoner of war, in an unknown world to me.
Where no dream can be made, and for me
all I have lies in the band of metal  you wear..... till I return.
