  • POW / MIA bracelet

    Posted on 9/19/17 - by Ann McKinley almcky1952@gmail.com
    Shortly after I graduated from high school in 1970, copper bracelets were sold with names and the date that the soldier went missing stamped on it. I believe they sold for $5. I bought one and the name on mine is Capt.Victor Apodaca, dated 6-8-67. At one time, I tried to get information as to the family so that I could return the bracelet to them. That was before the internet. I received a letter stating that they could not give out any information. I wore it for a long time and it eventually cracked in half. I still have it and am having it repaired. I always hoped that someday, it could be returned to his family. I would welcome an email should someone read this.

  • My mother wore your bracelet

    Posted on 9/18/16 - by Amy Lopas
    I found your MIA bracelet in my mother's jewelry box after she had passed. I remember her wearing the bracelet and looked up his name. I will never forget the name Victor Apodaca Jr or the sacrifice he and his family endured for my freedom and for our beautiful country. I know my mother and Victor are watching over us today. Love knows no boundries!
