|This Is a letter I wrote to President Bill
Clinton In the hope that I will receive some Information as to what our Government is
doing to bring Our POW/MIA home. Letter wrote on 21 August 1998.
Subject: What is being Done To bring them Home?
what is being done to determine the fate of CAPT. Gerald Everett Olson USASF, who was last heard from about 10 miles from the border of Laos in Quang Nam Province. No remains were ever found although there was an intensive search of the area later on, and no one saw him fall. There is no evidence that he was killed and he is known to have been capable of surviving under harsh conditions. Please advise me of any action that is being taken by you or any other elected appointed official to determine his fate.
In the event there is nothing being done, please explain why not, and tell me how you personally plan to correct this and prevent it from ever happening again." Please advise as to what you are doing to bring him and the crew home. Haven't His Family suffered enough? And what of the rest of crew?
|The Answer to my
Thank you for writing to President Clinton via electronic mail. Since June 1993, the President has received over 2.7 million messages from people across the country and around the world. Online communication has become a tool to bring government and the people closer together.
Because so many of you write, the President cannot personally review each message, though he does receive samples of his incoming correspondence. The White House Correspondence staff helps him read and respond to the mail. All responses are mailed via the U.S. Postal Service. This is the only electronic message you will receive from whitehouse.gov. No other message purporting to be from the President or his staff with an address at whitehouse.gov is authentic. If you have received such a message, you have received a "spoof."
We appreciate your interest in the work of the Administration.

Director, Presidential E-mail
