It's Something That Needs To Be Made More Aware To The Public

I ordered a bracelet because it’s something that needs to be made more aware to the public, people seem to forget about POW/MIA troops; whether they’re from the Vietnam, Korean or Iraqi wars. I wanted to get the word out, and this is definitely one way to do it, whether silently (to those whom have heard of it, but do not participate) or to those who ask “What’s that bracelet all about?” I’m active duty AF, I heard about this by asking that same question “What’s that bracelet all about?” I didn’t know what it was until about 18 months ago, and I think it’s a good thing to have out there in the public. People tend to forget that there are POWs still alive stuck in Vietnam, or they just don’t care. When we say “No man left behind” we try to stick to it as much as possible, and this is another way of funding that mission.
