For LCDR James E. Dooley

I am so happy to have found the MemorialBracelets.com web site. I lost my POW MIA bracelet honoring LCDR James E. Dooley. I have worn this and kept him with me for about 20 years. I didn't know him, or his family, but that doesn't matter. He's my hero. I lost my bracelet while working in a hay field. It hurt emotionaly alot. I felt as though I had let him down. Thanks you for taking custom orders so I can continue to honor LCDR Dooley. I'll be waiting by the mailbox. Thank You.

For SSG. Donald J. Trampski

Today was an emotional day, as I visited the Traveling Vietnam Memorial Wall. I found the soldier whose name has encompassed my wrist for almost 3 years now. As I stood among so many Veterans, in attendance both physically, and spiritually, my bracelet took on an entirely new meaning to me. Today it became more than just a single name. It became a single representation of 58, 282 soldiers who gave all.

For Vietnam War Returnee Capt. Myron MacDonald

My original POW/MIA bracelet was purchased around 1972 at a 4th of July Parade near my hometown, Flourtown, PA, when I was in junior high school. I wore my bracelet proudly for Captain Myron MacDonald, USAF, a pilot who was shot down in Vietnam. Fortunately, I witnessed the return of my POW, when his family told me to watch his return flight. I actually viewed him stepping off the plane that had just brought him home! I remember sending him letters and care packages. I was a strong supporter of our military men and women back when I was a teenager and continue to do so today. I have been a Soldiers Angel on the Letter Writing Team, for over two years now, writing to soldiers in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Africa! I sent these greetings in order to honor them and to remember all of the fallen heros of 911, as well as the Gulf War--when I was married to a USMC Cobra Helicopter Pilot who served in the war.

For Red's Co-Pilot Vietnam POW Kelly Patterson

I began wearing a POW Bracelet years ago with Darl Bloom's name on it.  I began wearing them because my cousin, Eugene "Red" McDaniel was a POW for years (had been shot down on my birthday in 1967).  However, doing a lot of net fishing in Bogue Sound, NC, I kept losing the bracelet and its replacement bracelets.   I'm ashamed to say that only now am I planning on wearing one again.

I've requested one with Kelly Patterson's name on it, this time, because he was Red's co-pilot.  It's the least I can do to bring awareness to the issue of POWs in any war, and to lend moral support to their families.

For Our Sons Matt and Sean

We ordered the Memorial Bracelets to memorialize our two sons, Sean and Matt. Matt was killed in Iraq April 1, 2007 and Sean passed away in his sleep May 25, 2007.

For POW Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl

When I first saw Sgt. Bergdahl as a P.O.W., he was being held by masked, gun-toting men making him say those things.  My heart went out to him and his family. I went to the store and bought yellow ribbon and put it on one of our porch poles.  Then it was a long time before I heard anything.  When I heard another report that he was still alive, I put another ribbon on with the other one which was already out there. They will stay their until I find out he has been realesed. When I saw his dad on television on Memorial Day this year, I was so glad to hear he was still alive. I hope and pray for him to be released very soon. I got on my computer later that day, and read some of the things different web pages.  I came across the MemorialBracelets.com site and order my bracelet.  I will wear it till Bowe comes home to his family. Thank you so much, keep up all the good things you are doing for them.

Always,     Ida S.

For My Childhood Friend SRA Jason T. Plite

Jason Plite was just another kid on the block.  Growing up we played outside all the time. We were classmates and great friends. Jason always wanted to grow up helping people.  It's no surprise he joined the USAF and became part of their elite Pararescue, where their motto is "That others may live". May he rest in Peace, and his memory live within all of us.
