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.
