POW bracelet

When I was in high school we we're offered the chance to own one of these bracelets. I got LtCol John W. Held USAF 17 Apr 68 SVN, I still have this bracelet and I'm 60 years old now I still treasure my bracelet. I googled John W Held and there was a bio on him I learned he had to eject from his plane never to be seen again.

I still remember Jack

My name is Kathy and I was very little when I knew Jack. We lived in South Bend and he and his buddies would come to our house for the night. I remember sitting on the sink watching him shave. My parents used to tell me that when he was around I never left his side. I still have a 50 year old stuffed rabbit I named Jackie Bunny and of course I have his bracelet.
I recently went to the Healing Wall in Leroy, Illinois and found his name on the wall and got a printed picture of him.
I will always remember him and miss him.
