Letter to youth

I was a sports writer at The Forum in Fargo and reproduced Cushman's letter to the youth of Grand Forks following his fall in the final Olympics trials. His letter became a yearly column that was appreciated by many at The Forum. Thanks, Cliff.

bracelet

i wore your pow bracelet for years until i went though my general surgery rotation in medical school(1981) . i had to choose safety / potential infection over my need to hold you close. i even ticked off a friend because i wore it in her wedding.
i went to georgetown med school so i was there when the vietnam memorial was unveiled. i looked for you, found you and visit you every time i go back. i hope to take my granddaughter to see you. you were a very important part of my young adulthood and brought me closer to my dad. he was retired army. by the way i always assumed you were african american...from the east coast...boy was i wrong. the best to your family..God bless them and you...and God bless America. your heart, always , diane
