For Mom's Stolen Vietnam Bracelet

I ordered a Vietnam Bracelet for Mother's Day this year. As a young girl, my mom wore her bracelet full time and cried when she had to take it off due to a broken wrist. In recent years, her house was broken into and her jewelry box was stolen and along with it, her bracelet. I searched the alleys close to her house and even local pawn shops, but was not able to recover any of the items. The one thing she has talked most about losing was her bracelet. So I have ordered her a replacement so that she can continue to wear it until her soldier is returned. Col GILBERT S. PALMER JR USAF 27 FEB 68 Laos MIA AL
