GOD BLESS & KEEP YOU

I was a college student at Kent State University when I bought your bracelet. I was in the Angel Flight organization on campus where we wore Air Force uniforms & wrote letters to soldiers in the Vietnam War. Major James Gates bracelet was on my wrist for years. When my son was old enough, he wore it while attending Valley Forge Military Academy. Your courage & bravery was always with me. Today my husband & I support many veteran initiatives. May you rest in peace & know that the country appreciates all that you did for us. THANK YOU!

Oldly Familiar

This man looks very similar to my brother. I just came upon Honorwater.org, as I was searching Louisiana for my grandfather, I found the first evidence of the story he told growing up, 'how they were swarmed by 10,000 and only 3 survived by jumping from the ledge'. The battle of choice resiviour. Strangest thing my grandfathers name is no where on the board. Just bits and pieces from others make his alais is all I could gather atm.
