MIA-POW.... REQUESTED TO POST.
I can only add that Mary and Joe never stopped searching for their son, CWO William Patrick “Billy” Milliner from the day he went missing until the day each passed away. Each parent, individually and collectively, left “no stone unturned” in their quest for Billy’s return, alive or dead. Further, Mary carried on the fight after Joe’s passing with equal passion. But this isn’t about them as Billy’s parents. This is about her. How would I describe Mary? Smart….Loyal….Devoted.…Fierce…. Feisty! Most of all, I would describe her as a loving wife and mother – and a true American patriot!
Now she has all the answers. May God keep her safe in the palm of His hand.

In from Danny Belcher, TFO KY:
Mary was one tough lady that you had to respect. She had a husband that was a WWII ex-POW and a son that was a Vietnam POW that was abandoned. Mary has gone for her final ride. Enjoy the rest Mary. You sure deserve it.
