KEVIN J. McMANUS
Captain - United States Air Force
Shot Down: June 14, 1967
Released: February 18, 1973
Having successfully completed a joyful (to say the least) flight from Hanoi
to Andrews Air Force Base, Maryland, my wife and I have continued our
honeymoon first in Washington, D.C. (with side tips to New York  where both
our families live) and now in North Carolina where I am currently enrolled
in the graduate school of business. The deluge of letters from
bracelet-wearers, well-wishers and many old friends  has been  quite an
emotional uplift.  We have enjoyed answering those letters and telegrams and
just hope that none have  been  lost and  unanswered.
Thank You and God Bless.

children, died peacefully on Friday evening, March 19 after a valiant, but
ultimately unsuccessful, two year battle with a cancerous brain tumor. Those
who knew him will miss him dearly, for he was a bright light that shone for
nearly 16 years.
