    I have worn your bracelet since 1971. Have never taken it off. You are thought about often. So glad I got to see your face! Please be with you!

  • My bracelet

    Posted on 7/14/17
    I have been hoping to one day put a face to the name on my bracelet. I am saddened to find out he was never found. I have worn/had my bracelet since I was like thirteen. I'm quite a bit older now. I never realized more then one person had his name. What a great way to honor him and all of our Vietnam MIA military. One day I hope to get to see this site in person. God bless all the missing and their families.

  • MIA Bracelet

    We never met, Michael, but we both grew up in Missoula. You were older but I remember your obituary in the Missoulian even though I was in the 8th grade. I have been wearing your bracelet for so many years that is is a part of me. I often wonder when it will break or I will lose it and what my next move will be. I enlisted in the USAF in 1973 because I wanted to get to Vietnam before it was over because of people like you. It was a crappy war, Michael, and you gave your life for it because of your patriotism and character. Thank you.

    DEAR LT. COMMANDER BOUCHARD,
    THANKS FOR YOUR SERVICE AS AN UNRESTRICTED LINE COMMANDER (PILOT) FROM THE U.S.S. CONSTELLATION. YOU ARE STILL MIA.
    PLEASE COME HOME.
    SUNDAY WAS THE 42ND ANNIVERSARY OF PRESIDENT FORD CALLING THIS DAY THE OFFICIAL END TO THE WAR. IF IT WAS ONLY THAT EASY. I AM SO SORRY. IT HAS BEEN FAR TOO LONG FOR ALL OF YOU TO HAVE BEEN GONE. WE APPRECIATE ALL YOU HAVE DONE, AND YOUR SACRIFICE. WATCH OVER THE U.S.A., IT STILL NEEDS YOUR COURAGE. GOD BLESS YOU. MAY THE ANGELS BE AT YOUR SIDE. REST IN PEACE. YOU ARE ALL IN OUR PRAYERS.

    I wore your bracelet for 10 years hoping and praying for news from you. I did get a letter fro your family at one time. In my move up north I lost the bracelet, but you have always remained in my heart.

The Wall of Faces

Brought to you by the organization that built The Wall, the Vietnam Veterans Virtual Memorial Wall is dedicated to honoring, remembering and sharing the legacies of all those who died in the Vietnam War. Here you can go beyond the names on The Wall to see the faces, share the stories and read the remembrances posted by friends, neighbors, classmates and family members.

All of these photos will be showcased in The Education Center at The Wall on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the effort to collect these photos and ensure their faces will never be forgotten, visit www.buildthecenter.org.
