I met Cpl Brian E. McCarthy in the the Central Highlands of Vietnam in 1969. We laughed and cried during our eight months together, and became as close as brothers. He was KIA during the invasion of Cambodia, and I will never forget him. RIP Brian.

As a young girl I had a POW/MIA Bracelet. As a teenager I lost the bracelet, but never forgot the man's name I wore for many many years. I just went to the Memorial Bracelets website and found my soldier, William F Mullens is still MIA from 1966 in Vietnam. I am re-ordering a bracelet so honor his memory.

I just ordered a bracelet in honor of USAF CAPT Steve Phillis. He was shot down and KIA in his A-10A in the Gulf War. He was protecting then Lt. Robert Sweet who was also shot down and taken prisoner. I had the pleasure of meeting Lt. Col Sweet many years later while working on A-10C's at Moody AFB, GA. We both share the same hometown and a love for Mountaineer football. I dedicate my bracelet to both of these fine examples of American heroes.

I was given my Memorial Bracelet from a good friend. It carries my son's name Sgt Leston Tony Winters. He was killed in action July 15 2010 in Afghanistan. I will wear it proudly, not just for my son, but for others who have fallen. Proud Mother of a fallen hero. My HERO My SON.

I have been wearing my Humbert R. Versace POW bracelet who was captured in Vietnam for 10 years now with the intentions of reminding myself that freedom is not really free. Today, I ordered one to wear the rest of my days for my friend who I have known and grown up with since he was little, who I consider a brother on it. He died in Afghanistan on Monday, July 23, 2012 fighting for all of our freedom. These bracelets give me a sense of fullness knowing he will be with me daily. Thank you
