To Continue Honoring SGT Demmon As My Mother Once Did
My mother got the original bracelet in 65 or 66. Because, Sgt Demmon went MIA on my brother's birthday. She never took it off until she passed away in 1986. She did ask that I continue to wear it until he came home, and I promised I would.
It was Stainless Steel, the black paint for the lettering have long wore off. I wore it up until last year, when I bent it badly after grabbing for something and the bracelet caught. Given the age of my bracelet, I didn't want to bend it back, so I put put away and have been searching for someway to replace it. I feel incomplete without it, having wore it for so long.
