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.
