PAUL G. BROWN
I deeply thank you for your love, concern, thoughts, and actions on behalf of the American servicemen involved in Vietnam, the bereaved sadness with 45,958 American families, and the plight of the POW's. I deeply thank you for your involvement whether you were fighting, writing letters to dignitaries or Embassies or to generate wide spread support, wearing symbolic bracelets, talking to others to raise their level of awareness, peacefully demonstrating your convictions at rallies or in the streets, or involved in the peace negotiations. All of you in your own way brought an end to the Vietnam war and the return of the prisoners. I hope that the dead, the maimed, the prisoners, the veterans, the prayer for peace, and the lessons learned from the Vietnam war will not be forgotten.
The most profound effect of my imprisonment is the positive realization of the freedoms and liberties that our country affords to its citizens by the Constitution. I am proud to be an American.
