    Art Ecklund went through helicopter flight training with my brother and I knew him from Fort Rucker. I was in aircraft maintenance at the time. I eventually went through OCS and primary fixed wing flight school and was sent to Vietnam and was stationed with the 183rd. When I arrived at the unit I saw Art's name of the wall showing that he was MIA. What a shock as I was not aware. May he rest in Peace.

    I wore a POW/MIA bracelet with Arthur’s name in the early ‘70s. I’ve been to the Wall to visit him twice. RIP and thank you for your service.

    We were childhood kids together and I was his substitute on his paper route
    I last saw him the day he withdrew from Arizona State to pursue his love of flying in the Army
    I am in contact with his sister and her daughters and grand kids.
    If you would be interested in returning the bracelet to the family I am happy to forward them to her.
    I have done that a number of times to date.
    I do still have mine as he was the older brother I never had..

    I got a POW bracelet of Capt. Eckland when I entered the University of Arizona in 1972 after spending 4 years in the Air Force. I wore it for many many years and have had on on my desk ever since. I remember Capt Eckland and all on this Memorial Day weekend who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
