    I have had a bracelet with LCDR Donald Woloszyk's name on it since 1966 or 1967. I was looking through some old things and came across the bracelet. I found out years ago that he was missing but I never learned exactly what happened. I was saddened to see on the internet that he in fact was lost to all of us in Viet Nam. His family are in my prayers as well as all the young men who didn't come home safely. Dear Lord,keep them all safe in the palm of your hands.

    I wore my MIA/POW bracelet for years until it broke. I still have the bracelet in my jewelry box. My fondest wish is to visit the Vietnam Memorial and leave my bracelet by LCDR Woloszyk's name.

  • MIA Bracelet

    I wore his MIA bracelet also. Found it many years ago in some personal things. In 1990 I contacted the Alpena County Department of Veterans' Affairs who put me in contact with his father (with his father's permission). I was blessed to be able to return my bracelet to his family!

    I have had my LCDR Donald Woloszyk since the 70's. I recently found it again after many years. It's truly amazing that the internet can give us more information than what we had in the 70's/ I have often wondered what happened to this hero and his family and hope they have some peace with all this madness.

    I proudly wear the pow/mia bracelet of Donald Woloszyk. I know little about he except what I learned on the Vietnam Veteran's site. I would like to contact any family member of his and give them the bracelet as a remembrance. Please contact me on Facebook or e-mail me at
    Thank you

  • Remembering...

    Posted on 1/21/14 - by Carolee Smith
    Today I opened a box of keepsakes I had not looked at for many years. In it was my bracelet with LCDR Donald Woloszyk's name. My husband and I wore bracelets during the late years of the war, hoping our prayers would bring two young men home safely. We watched on TV one day as the man whose name he wore disembarked from a plane and we cried with gratitude and joy for his family. Finding my bracelet today, I went to the internet and found Lt. Commander Woloszyk is still not home. Forty-eight years later, we remember with sadness a young life cut way too short and his family members who live every day with a hole in their hearts.
  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear LCDR Donald Joseph Woloszyk, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    I bought his remembrance bracelet in 1969. I wore it for 20 years. I have it on now as the Traveling wall is now in Toledo, OH for the week. I have never forgot about you and the others. You're my hero and so are all vets. God Bless all who served in all wars.

    If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.

  • Do not stand at my grave and weep

    Posted on 3/1/09 - by Bob Ross
    Do not stand at my grave and weep.
    I am not there; I do not sleep.
    I am a thousand winds that blow,
    I am the diamond glints on snow,
    I am the sun on ripened grain,
    I am the gentle autumn rain.
    When you awaken in the morning's hush
    I am the swift uplifting rush
    Of quiet birds in circled flight.
    I am the soft stars that shine at night.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry,
    I am not there; I did not die.

    Mary Frye – 1932

    I have been wearing Donald Joseph Woloszyk pow-mia bracelet continually since August 1990. It fell off my arm once and I cried because I thought I had lost something that has become a part of me. I found it within hours and I realized the sacrifice of this man I never knew would be with me forever.

    I will wear this bracelet on my wrist till the day I die. I wear it with pride and am thankful for all that those in the armed services do to keep us safe from harm.

    I also wear Donald Woloszyk's MIA bracelet. I would like to give it to a family member if they would care to have it.

  • Not Forgotten

    I have not forgotten you. I chair the Adoption Committee for The National League of Families of Prisoners of War and Missing in Action in Southeast Asia. We will always remember the 1,889 Americans still unaccounted for in Southeast Asia and the thousands of others that lost their lives. We will not stop our efforts until all of you are home where you belong.

    We need to reach the next generation so that they will carry on when our generation is no longer able. To do so, we are attempting to locate photographs of all the missing. If you are reading this remembrance and have a photo and/or memory of this missing American that you would like to share for our project, please contact me at:

    I didn't know LCDR Woloszyk, but I inherited his MIA bracelet from my mother. I finally decided to research him because I feel almost as if I know him from wearing his bracelet. I am in the military myself, marrying another Marine. Perhaps I mourn for LCDR Woloszyk hoping I will not have to mourn my husband the same way.
  • Hero's should always be remembered

    Posted on 6/1/99 - by John O. Semon
    I did not personally know LCDR Donald Woloszyk; however, I began wearing a POW bracelet bearing his name during the summer of 1966. I still wear the bracelet from time to time and think of his sacrifice. Hero's should always be remembered.
