  • I wore your POW/MIA bracelet

    Posted on 5/30/17 - by M. Tenchara
    My Father gave me Col. Oscar Mauterer 's POW/MIA bracelet when I was a young child. He went missing a few days before I was born. I didn't understand the importance of this bracelet until I was much older, but I memorized his name and never forgot it, not even 30 years later when I found your name on the Vietnam Wall in Washington, DC. Today, Memorial Day 2017, I remembered your name again. A man I never met, but a name I will never forget. Sadly, I no longer have the bracelet, it was given to a child that didn't even know what war was, or the great responsibility of protecting this keepsake. But, thankfully I never forgot your name and Ican learn all about you now. I hope someone from your family finds this message and contacts me. ????
