  • Never took off your bracelet

    Posted on 9/26/17 - by Carrie Click
    From the first day I got your bracelet in 1968 in elementary school until it broke in half in the '70s, I never took it off and I'll never forget your name. I wrote to your mother and she wrote me back. Even as an 8-year-old, I wanted to show my support for those like you having to go to Vietnam while also showing my support for peace. Not such an easy thing to do. You are not forgotten.

    Dear Bobby:
    Today and forever you will be remembered for your service to our country. I still pray for you to be brought home to your family. You will never be forgotten and will always be a part of us.

  • I wore his MIA bracelet for many years

    I wore his bracelet for many years until it broke in half...and I just found it when I moved...I often wondered if he was ever found...
    I believe I got this bracelet when I was in grade school - sometime around 1968?

    I received my P.O.W./M.I.A bracelet sometime in the 1970's. I still have it now. It is on my wrist as I write this. I did not know Lt. Col. Robert J. Ditommaso but I was so fortunate to be able to communicate with his mom. She was an amazing woman who gave this country an amazing young man.

    R.I.P. ROBERT J. DITOMMASO. Fifty years have passed since you left us, you are never forgotten.
