POW/MIA. I bought my POW Bracelet at Glendean when I was 12 years old. I wore it faithfully for many, many years. My officer's name is inscribed in the Vietnam Memorial Wall, he never came home. CWO Robert C. Link.
POW/MIA Bracelets - If you still have one, or you remember the name, look up the soldier who served. I recently was able to contact the man whose name was on my bracelet. Happily, he made it back to his family (many did not). It meant a lot to him, knowing that people were thankful for his service to our country and that he had not been forgotten.
[everyone talks about WMDs being/ not being in Iraq but one of the reasons we invaded Iraq was to get our POW-MIAs. One was a young girl who was captured during Gulf 1, they found her hiding with Bedouins. The best known is Michael Scott Speicher, Clinton changed his status from "missing, presumed dead" to POW. There was a team following the invasion force testing DNA in places he might have been & they found his in a prison in Bagdad, but not him. They just recently found his body.]
