Feel Like I Know You

On November 3, 2011, I left your bracelet at the Wall. How did I get it? When I was a Sophomore in high school in 1989 I was involved in AFJROTC. Through this, I met someone whose family worked to return bodies of soldiers lost in Vietnam. SP6 Jack L. Decaire was the bracelet I got. I never knew you or anyone who knew you, but you became part of my family. I wore that bracelet every day of my life taking it off only 1 time when I had surgery - and even then, I transferred it to my mom's arm so you were still with me. On the 40th Anniversary of your disappearance, I took you on a trip from Alabama to Washington, DC, and laid you at the base of the wall. Although you are no longer on my arm, you are forever in my heart. Thank you for your service and sacrifice.

MIA POW

I am the Sr VP of the VFW Post 4351. Last night I wore Sgt DeCaire's name around my neck for our POW MIA Vigil. While this is not my 1st ceremony that I attended, it is my most memorable. My daughter was murdered and her remains not found just hours before her Birthday and Mother's Day 2018. My brother a retired Army Colonel, related her body not being recovered as there were many of the same with POW/MIA. It was until last night, did I realize what he meant was.. The families did not have closure, as I don't either. I can now related. My heart, love and prayers are now with each family of a loved one never to be found, but continue to live i9n our hearts.
