As with all things, an idea for a project begins with some specific reasons.  I guess my reasons begin as far back as my time in Vietnam; watching my friends and brothers die within arms reach of me.  Life takes on a whole new reason during wartime in the hotzones.
 
Then I was injured myself.  Again, life takes a turn and shows me more meaning.
 
I've stayed in touch with many of my brothers in the CAV unit.  I've attended reunions, I've weeped at memories so painful of my fallen brothers, of the lives they might have had but didn't; of the reasons their lives were cut short and why the rest of us kept going on.
 
It's a constant reminder, those that never came back with the rest of us.  Some, because they were killed and although they did come home, it was in caskets.
 
As for all Vietnam Veterans, I think we all are overwhelmed at the number of our brothers who didn't come home because they were POW/MIAs.  Are they still alive today?  I pray they are.  Yet I don't wish them years and years of sufferage either. In our hearts, minds, and in our memories of the horror of war and of Vietnam, WE have NEVER FORGOTTEN those that never came home with us, those that were classified POW/MIAs.
 
In viewing a car that a fellow brother built to honor the POW/MIA, I got the idea that I wanted to do the same with a motorcycle.
I wanted to honor my brothers in some outstanding way.
 
Too many Americans have forgotten these proud, courageous, strong fighters of right, liberty, freedom and justice.  Those of us who were there NEVER WILL.
 
So, the bike was found and stripped and is being re-created to honor those from ALL WARS that never came home.
 
It is small homage to them, to Honor them and to remind one and all...
THEY ARE NOT FORGOTTEN.
Neither are the huge sacrifices they made.

You're website is being awarded the Gold Award for POW/MIA Awareness.  CONGRATULATIONS!
 
The National POW/MIA Awareness Assn. is more than determinded to help bring out the hushed and little knowlege American's know about what the POW/MIA stands for and represents.  Most small American children think it's two words POW and MIA.  We need to enlighten them.  For far too many years our P.O.W/M.I.A.s have been merely whispered about.  Yet we have dared to use the slogan 'NEVER FOGOTTEN'.  True, but by the FEW.  It's time to make that the MASSES.  And to keep the vigils going to bring each and every man and woman home.  Military families need the reassurance that we ALL stand together in that PROMISE.
 
You're site helps to fulfill either a part of that ideal, if not the entire ideal.  The Nation POW/MIA Awareness Assn. has decided to award you and your site their Gold Award for it.  I hope you'll accept it with honor as it is so proudly and distinguishly given.  It is also I hope to continue to build POW/MIA chapters throughout each and every state.  Joining is FREE.
