I just learned of Major Montague passing. I still have my POW bracelet that I have displayed on my dresser and prayed for him daily. I got the bracelet in 1971 and wore it daily until I learned he was indeed alive and returned home.

My most sincere condolences to his family. My prayers for you all will continue.

God Bless you all

Praying for all Paul’s family and friends! I will miss his stories! Wish I could be there for the service but I will be in Mexico. I very much loved and appreciated Paul and all of his great service to our country.

It was a great honor to meet Paul, take he and Shirley for a memorable hot air balloon ride and then be selected to write his autobiography. We have truly lost another American hero. My sincere sympathy to Shirley and their family. Dr Jim Tuorila
