For the POW bracelet I wore for 1st LTD Wm. Flnn

A friend of mine that I haven't seen in years sent me some pictures she had found of us when we were younger.  I attached the file that she sent me.  I just turned 50 a few weeks back so you know the pictures are old!  The top picture is me when I was about 15 so that's about 35 years ago.  I noticed that I had my POW bracelet on.  I remembered clearly what the bracelet had said on it...1st LTD Wm. Finn 12/24/71.  It was Christmas Eve when he went missing..how tragic. I had worn that for about 10 years and was never able to find out what happened to him.  I still have that bracelet so I got it out of my jewelry box and decided to search the Internet to see if I could find out anything about him.  From what I found out, it appears that he was never located and from some accounts, considered deceased.  That made me very sad.  When I found your web site, I decided to purchase another bracelet in his name so that the proceeds from the sale could help his family or others in need. While it is a small gesture, every little bit helps.
