POW Bracelet

While going through my younger sisters belongings (she recently passed away), I came across your POW/MIA bracelet. Back then, there was limited ways to research your name, but now with internet, I was able to find your name, and find this website. I pray that someday, your remains are found and returned to your living family members. I also had a POW/MIA bracelet and although I don’t remember his name, I was able to mail him his bracelet once he was found/released.
If any of your family happen to see this message, please contact me and I will mail this MIA/POW bracelet to you.

God Bless You and RIP Lt. Col. Brendan Foley
