I chose Shoshana, before she was rescued, because I was also in the Army, back in
the 60s, and also a specialist.
I ordered this bracelet because it will be my third POW/MIA bracelet. I got
my first one in around 1967, while in the Army. I wore that bracelet until
the Viet Nam war was over and they released our prisoners. My person, LTC
Vernon Ligon, was returned home. I then ordered another bracelet for one of
those who never came back and wore it for a number of years. It just seemed
right to order another one during this conflict. At least this time our
POWs were released in short order instead of years later or not at all, with
only a few exceptions so far. Here's hoping there won't be any, or at least
not too many, more names to add to these bracelets.
