  • I Remember the Day

    Perry, your wife, Sylvia and my mom were best friends. I remember being at your house and swimming in the pool. I remember the beer tap you had in your bar which looked like a urinal. How cool was that?
    I remember the day Sylvia came over to our house and told us you had been shot down and was MIA. My mom and Sylvia cried for hours together. We were heartbroken.

    Perry, I did my tour in Vietnam as well. I thought of you often then, wondering if I might just see you there somehow and how great that would be. I had hope.

    I remember the day I took your daughter to visit Bob Flick, a good friend of yours who was with you in Nam. They talked for hours. She told him all about you as a dad. He told her all about you as a brother in arms.

    I still have your MIA bracelet and wear it each year to remember you by. I honor you as a friend and as a fellow Vietnam Veteran.
    .....RIP brother.

  • POW braclet

    Posted on 7/11/16 - by Julie Smith
    To whom it may concern,

    I have been cleaning out some closets in my home, and found my POW bracelet for Captain Perry Jefferson. I believe I received the bracelet when I was in junior high. Many many prayers for his rescue were sent heavenward. I was thankful to hear he has been laid to rest. Just wanted you to know though the years he's been remembered.

    Be blessed!
