To Teach My Students about Service and Sacrifice

I wear a POW/MIA bracelet for a Navy pilot lost over North Vietnam that I got while I was in the service.  My students always ask about it, and when I discovered your site after 9/11, I let them know about the opportunity and they chose to sign up if they wanted a bracelet.  Some chose non name bracelets, many selected the names of firefighters from FDNY unit that we "adopted" and raised money for their fallen members fund.  I tied it to several lessons about service, sacrifice and serving a cause.
