American POWs, MIAs will never be forgotten

2014-06-15T00:00:00Z American POWs, MIAs will never be forgotten

Hearing about the American POW soldier who just got free after five years in captivity has taught us all to never lose hope. After almost 27 years I still wear my bracelet for ADJ1 Ronald P. Soucy, U.S.N., who is missing in action since May 23, 1967. I will wear this bracelet until he comes home.

His memorial is on 119th Street. I have honored his memory with flowers and decorations all these years.

I just thought if I was a parent of an MIA, I would be very moved and proud that a stranger did not forget Ronald and other MIAs and POWs. You are not forgotten. Never will be.
