    I also wore Capt Arthur Ecklund’s bracelet in high school (1970-1974) Tracy High, Tracy California. I also wrote to his parents and they wrote back and told me they called him Artie. I will today (2017) have his braclet and the letters I received from his mom. May he Rest In Peace.

    In high school I wore a bracket with CAPT ARTHUR ECKLUND for many years. What an honor! Blessings to his family! May he always be remembered with pride!

    I wore his bracelet. I wrote his parents and they sent me a picture and a letter about him. I was a young girl. Age 10-13. The bracelet eventually broke and was lost, but I will never forget. I hope to see you in heaven one day.

    I just talked to Artie Ecklund's sister,Kathy. Finally tracked her down in Alberta, Canada. We had a great conversation catching up after almost 50 years. Needless to say her thoughts of Artie are still strong and emotional. She confirmed that she had named her twins after him. One Artie Jo and the other using his middle name Gene. She does not want to get too involved due to her anger with the Government handling of his MIA and remains return. She did though say that if I was able to get bracelets her children and grand kids would cherish them... So I am going to see if I can be a clearing house to facilitate that process. Photo is of Ecklund family in 1956. Thanks to all who have posted and kept this family in their hearts.
