  • POW/MIA Braclet

    I have been wearing James Ketterer POW/MIA name bracelet since 1972. I have never taken it off. My family continues to pray for his return to US soil . We keep the yellow ribbons on a tree with the POW/MIA flag-in his honor . our children and now their children refer to James as "Our Captain Ketterer" . He is our brother in Christ

  • POW/MIA bracelet

    Posted on 5/9/16 - by Kay Dodge
    I bought a pow/mia bracelet with Capt. Ketterer in 1984. I was 20 years old then and in the Air Force. I wore it everyday only taking it off for my wedding day, an MRI and for a surgery. I finally put it away when the US normalized relations with Vietnam. I was heartbroken that day. I knew that there was nothing to hold them accountable for finding my missing Capt. I have since come to terms with that and hope that someday your remains will be found and returned to your home in WI. A day does not go by that I don't think about you. Even though I never knew you, I know that you know you are cared about and loved. Keep on flying wherever you are Zoomie!

  • Never Met The Man But I Am Remembered of Him Every Day

    At the age of 13 (1970) I bought a POW/MIA bracelet to support our troops in Vietnam. We weren't supposed to remove the bracelet until the person listed POW/MIA came home. I took the bracelet off three times in 45 years. I am 58 years old and I still have it on my left wrist. The bracelet is for Captain James Ketterer (1-20-68). May God bless the good Captain and may he rest in peace. God bless America and God Bless our troops.
