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.
