For My Son in the US Army

I wear an Active Duty Bracelet to support my son, who is an officer in the United States Army. It is all he has wanted since he was in 6th grade. I am very proud of my son and want everyone to know it.

I wore a POW Bracelet in the 1960-70's while in high school and after I graduated. In all the moves I made, I misplaced my bracelet, until recently. I was cleaning out a cupboard and went through a box and found my bracelet. I went to the web and found my returned POW, a United States Navy pilot. I am so excited. I live in California and he is in Texas and we are trying to figure out a way to meet each other so I can give him the bracelet I wore. He has written a book and wants to trade.

I encourage everyone to wear a bracelet to honor past or present service people. They are worth it and it means so much to them.
