For POWs

I ordered a bracelet because one of my teachers in high school had one that he wore for the Vietnam War. His was also for a P.O.W. and I remember asking him about it. One day when I saw he was no longer wearing it. He explained to me that the young man's body had be found and returned to his family in the states. That really touched me deeply how he had worn that bracelet for over 20 years till that boy was returned back to his family. Now with the war in the middle east going on. I figured it waws time for my generation to take a stand and make sure these new soliders are not forgoten. That is why I plan on wearing my bracelet for SGT Keith M. Maupin until I hear about his return home.
