POW bracelet

In 1974ish my high school “adopted” service members who were either MIA or POWs. We were each given a metal bracelet with a POW/MIA name engraved on it. I received Capt. Dennis Eilers. The bracelet reminded me to pray for him & his family, which I did daily.

I wore the bracelet until it broke. (At least a couple of years.) I never knew if he came home or not until a friend went to the Vietnam Memorial Wall in DC. I asked him to check if Capt. Eilers was on it. Unfortunately it was. He got me a rubbing of his name.

Thank you Capt. Eilers for your sacrifice and I’m so sorry for your family.

From Seattle, WA
