For CWO James Larry Phipps

I still have my copper bracelet from 1972. The one I ordered from your website will have the same name "CWO James Larry Phipps".  Last year I assembled & dedicated a POW/MIA white table for the VFW Post where my husband is Commander.  I was inspired by memories of 40 years ago and the name on my bracelet who I called my soldier.  I will treasure my new bracelet just as I do the copper one.        
Thank You,
Deloras J.

For Sgt. Rodney Griffin and PFC Michael C. Roell

I received my POW/MIA bracelet when I was about 12 or so in 1970. Years later, I was going to a community college near where I live and met a guy whose brother was killed in Vietnam. In the early 1990's, I was in DC and I was able to get him and his mother an etching each.  They didn't know that I was going to do that and they both were surprised and extremely grateful. Very recently, I became interested in whether my guy, Sgt. Rodney Griffin, 5-2-70, ever came home, and he hasn't. No remaines yet, either. I also stumbled upon your wesite and I order a KIA bracelet in the name of PFC Michael C. Roell, the brother of the guy I knew at college. I just wanted you to know that after all these years, I haven't forgotten about either one of them, and I don't think I ever will. Thanks for reading my message and for having this website. God bless, Dorinda
