For Capt. Roy Bowling

I just ordered a replacement Bracelet for the hero I wore in High School till it literally broke off my wrist.  I visited his place on the Wall this Veteran's Holiday.
We were born the same day 
me - 12-16-55
Capt Roy H Bowling -12-16-29
He died for me ... that's what it feels like. 

In Honor of Eric Greco and His Family

The KIA bracelets I ordered were for my Dad and myself-- our previous bracelets were worn/faded and broken. The soldier, Eric Greco, was my dad's best friend, who sadly was KIA in the Vietnam War and on on my dad's birthday. When I presented the new KIA bracelet to my dad, the look on his face was absolutely priceless. He put it on immediately, as I did with mine, and we wear them every single day in honor of Eric Greco and his family.

For SFC Donald Rander

When looking thru my current American Legion auxiliary magazine I saw an article regarding the POW bracelets. It brought back many memories. My Dad who was a recruiter in the Navy gave me my POW bracelet. I believe when I was in high school. I still have it today. I knew the POW named on my bracelet had been found before I put my bracelet away for safe keeping. I still have it today and am wearing on my wrist for Veterans Day. I confirmed again that SFC Donald Rander 2-1-68 had been returned and he had. For all of the military out there "Thank you for your Service".
