For Sgt JOSEPH A. ZUTTERMAN JR - Vietnam War MIA

I have worn my MIA Bracelet until it rotted off, then I got another until once again it rotted off.  I then bought one for dress so Sgt Zutterman Jr. can get dressed up and go out.  He has been with me for at least 3 years. He has been to England, Norway, Hawaii, Colorado and of course Kansas. I have just ordered a new bracelet and a dog tag this time. I hope that some day he can come home to rest.

For Lindsay S. Moorehouse

This is bittersweet. I received my Lindsay S. Moorehouse bracelet today from Memorial Bracelets. In a world filled with violence, we should not have to worry about our children not coming home as so many people are experiencing. Lindsay was in the World Trade Center on 911. Like so many others, there are so many chapters to her beautiful life. She was waiting on her Little with the Big Brother
Big Sister Program. They had just found one for her. She was to meet her that week. I know the anticipation, the excitement, the waiting. If you read her story in Big Magic, like so many others, she
was a beautiful young lady with a beautiful future ahead of her. I will wear this bracelet in her honor. I will not let her light go out. I will one day tell my Little her story. She will always shine. Darkness cannot put out light and a beautiful spirit.

For SSG Michael Simpson


On 27 April 2013, SSG Michael H Simpson was critically injured as a result of an Improvised Explosive Device, (IED), attack during a patrol in Southern Afghanistan. SSG Simpson was transported to Landstuhl, Germany where he succumbed to those injuries on 1 May 2013



I will be visiting the grave of SSG Michael Simpson in Arlington for the first time since loading him onto the plane from Afghanistan to Germany in 2013.  I am an active duty, USAF Chaplain Assistant who served in the joint hospital at Bagram AF.  I never knew Michael while he was fully alive, but prayed day and night from the moment he was brought into the hospital that he would be able to see his wife and family in Germany before he passed.
