Remember the MIA/POW Vietnam bracelets?


Recommended Posts

My guy finally made it home and was laid to rest exactly 38 years to the day that his plane went down.

RIP Curtis Dan Miller. Your job is done :salute:

Now his family can rest, for that I'm glad.

If we could only repay their sacrifice,

I wouldn't feel so sad.

 

My best friend in college never came home....

Mine wasnt copper........in my case the name and date he went missing in action were inscribed.

I wore it everyday when I was a kid.

My brother got to watch his guy get off a plane....they used to show our guys coming home on the news.....flash names up as they came off the plane...

 

my brothers guy was pow.........so when he was released it was a big deal and televised.

 

my guy never came back.

Sheri glad that your guy finally came home. Did you wear that bracelet everyday? Are you going to return it to his family?

Mine looks like the one in the site Enis posted. I wore it for 20 years. When Desert Storm broke out we were overseas and I took it off so as not to draw attention to the fact that I was an American. They thought I was Australian. It was safer that way. But my bracelet has been on my dresser ever since. It actually did fly pretty close to Vietnam and Laos back then as we roamed thru SE Asia :)

 

I have emailed his widow and asked her if she would like it and have not heard back from her yet. I presume she is not home yet.
