I still remember receiving my bracelet and sending a letter to the family, despite not knowing what to say and not expecting a response. Not long after, I received a beautiful response, making the experience personal. The bracelet is in my hand as I type this. God bless.

A thank you for your sacrifice to serve our nation.

I wore Lt Col Newk Grubb's POW bracelet for years and years and kept it stored where I would see it daily and continued to pray for him. I have the bracelet if there is a family member who would cherish it.

Do Not Stand at my Grave and Weep

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.
