His bracelet

I wore his bracelet proudly when I was a young girl. I am now 56 years old, and feel a deep connection to this young man. Thank you, for your service and giving me freedom.

Butch Baldridge was my friend and classmate at Texas A&M

Butch and I were in the Corps of Cadets and the Ross Volunteers together. He was well respected by everyone in the Corps and was the epitome of leadership, integrity and military bearing. I was proud to answer "here" for him at our first class reunion after his death in Vietnam. There was not a more gungho Aggie than Butch and I wish we could have grown old together and had the opportunity to reminisce at our class reunions.

I know this will seem odd...

Today, in a box filled with all sorts of mementos, I found a bracelet with Capt. John Baldridge jr.'s name. My husband, being in the Navy, recognized the significance immediately. You see, I do storage auctions. So I often find all sorts of treasures. I am also a historian. I thoroughly enjoyed finding the bracelet and reading about Capt. Baldridge. I am thankful for his and his families' sacrifice. I will hold onto the bracelet as a reminder of what others have given so that we can enjoy the freedoms we have today. The bracelet was well worn. Someone had to weld it back together after it snapped. Thank you for your sacrifice.

Story

I have a story about Butch which takes place in College Station. My father was his advisor. Does anyone have an address for his daughter that I could send the story.
