For Lt. James E. Teague

I wore a MIA/POW Bracelet for Lt. James E. Teague until they notified me that he had been brought home.  A very sad time for me.

I used to look at his bracelet every day and pray and wonder where and how he was.
All these years since, I would think of him and his family and how their lives changed with his death.  John 15:13 - "No one has greater love than this, to lay down one's life for one's friend."

I have read the summary of his mission and the shootdown sequence provided by Theodore G. Stier  CDR, USN (Ret.)  I have always wondered what happened.  It brought all the feeling back like it just happened.

Always wanted to get in contact with his family and tell them how sorry I was and that I prayed for him every day but did not have the resources.
