    I recently started wearing your bracelet. I had worn one for another MIA for several years and he was recently identified so I chose to wear another. I was given your name, and I will remember you daily. Thank you for your service, you and your family are in my prayers.

  • I wore your bracelet...

    I was going through some old boxes and came across my MIA bracelet with your name on it. I decided to look up your name. Through the years I have wondered who you would have been if you had survived and how your loss affected those close to you... I just found out that you grew up fairly close to where I live in CdA, Idaho. Our favorite motorcycle ride is the Thompson Pass, Montana loop. Every summer I will think of you and your great sacrifice as we pass through and I will remember and honor you.

    Victor, I got your POW bracelet as a freshman in college in 1968. I wore it continuously for ten years. After I married and started a carrier I took it off and packed it away with other cherished possessions, but I never forgot you. About three years ago I was able to see the Wall and to touch your name. Today for the first time I saw your face. Thank you so much for your service and for the ultimate sacrifice.

    I have had your bracelet since 2004 when I visited DC with my sons 5th grade class. I did not know you, but I know you, because of the USMC we will be brothers forever. Rest peacefully brother, we got the watch now. I will remember you on this Memorial Day when we walk the Carry the Load event in Dallas, TX.
