For Uncle Bobby Killed in Vietnam

I received the POW Bracelet today and gave it to my 6 year son, for whom it was ordered.  He is named for his uncle Bobby whom he never met.  His Uncle Bobby was killed in Vietnam just a few weeks after being there in April of 1969.  The family rarely, if ever speaks of what happened that day or the weeks that followed, waiting for their son, brother, uncle to return home.  The bracelet was ordered as a tribute and memorial for my son of his uncle, who gave the ultimate sacrifice.  My son does not understand the significance of the bracelet now, but will be taught as he grows.  Thank you for the time and care you put into making the bracelet.
