MIA bracelet

I have a chrome bracelet with Col Lewis H. Abrams USMC 25 Nov 67 NVN engraved on it. I bought this in the 1980's in Alabama if I remember right. It has been packed away in a stored jewelry box since about 1995 when I moved back to LA. I just came across it and was able to find out the information on this fallen soldier via internet/google. At the time I wore the bracelet I did not have internet and often wondered how would I ever find out any information. Today was very emotional for me. I would love to send this bracelet to one of Mr Abrams children or a grandchild. email: [email protected]

Remembering An American Hero

Dear Colonel Lewis Herbert Abrams, 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

Curt Carter
