Commitment, Family & Legacy: A Daughter’s Journey

Cindy Stonebraker is the daughter of one of our nation’s 1,592 Unreturned Veterans from the Vietnam War. As was the norm during that time, this issue was not talked about. Now, 50 years later, many questions are still unanswered.

Cindy sits on the Board of Directors for the National League of POW/MIA Families in Washington DC. The League of Families works to obtain the fullest possible accounting for the missing and repatriation of all recoverable remains of those who died during the Vietnam War. Her service on the Board has allowed her access to government and military officials still actively working on this issue. This past year she participated in an Official League of Families Delegation trip to Southeast Asia, where they met with government officials to help account for our Missing Service Members from the Vietnam War.

Please join Hopkinsville-Christian County Public Library as Cindy shares her journey to learn about her father, connect with other families of the missing, and help to fulfill the nation’s promise for the Fullest Possible Accounting.
