A Hero I Never Got to Meet

In 1993 or 1994 I asked an MIA organization for a POW flag and a bracelet of any MIA from Montana, my wife's home state. I received a bracelet of LTC Richard D. Appelhans and have worn it almost every day since. 1993-1996 I served as Chaplain/Leadership Development Officer at Ft. Huachuca and met CPT Richard D. Appelhans in a class - son of a cousin of the original! In 2008 I preached on Jn.15.13 using the original Richard's service as an example. A woman in the congregation lived in Dodson - I spoke to either Richard's mother or sister a couple of days later. In 2016, teaching in High School, I had the 2nd Richard's daughter in class! A small world. My prayer is that Richard D. Appelhans is found and brought home for peace! God bless them all!

Bracelet

I am a 43 year old woman. In my teens, I became interested in the Vietnam War and remembering and honoring all of the Vets. I received the MIA/POW Bracelet for LTC Richard Appelhans. I still wear it every 4th of July, Veterans Day and Memorial Day. Thank you to him and all of the Vets and families. May we never forget.
