    I wore it constantly until it weakened broke in half and fell from my wrist. I remembered your name all these decades later-just tonite after watching the documentary THE VIETNAM WAR on RMPBS. I then googled you and with tear filled eyes am gazing at your handsome photo. Love and Peace to our family.You my friend will never be forgotten. Christine Verzuh
  • I, too, had Colonel Johns' POW bracelet

    A number of years ago, I wrote to the Defense Prisoner of War/Missing Personnel Office to find out what happened to Colonel Johns. Here is their reply:

    "On June 28, 1968, Colonel Johns was the pilot of an A1H aircraft flying a combat mission over Laos. During the mission, the aircraft was struck by heavy enemy ground fire and crashed. Search and rescue efforts were made, but there was no sign of Colonel Johns. Since 1995, Department of Defense personnel have conducted multiple investigations in Vietnam to account for Colonel Johns, but regrettably we have yet to account for him. We continue to investigate his loss. If you would like to learn more about Colonel Johns' loss incident, his records are available to the public at the Library of Congress.
