I have a POW Bracelet I'd like the family to have.

Hello John W. Kennedy family, when I was a 12yr old child in Pittsburgh PA, 1971, my Mother contributed to a POW fund and received bracelets for we 3 children. I'm not sure when I took it off, because I wore it around the clock--it never came off for at least a year, as the wear will indicate. We checked the database back then, but John was just listed as MIA. Recently, both my parents passed, and while getting the estate in order, I found mine. My Mother saved it. If you would like it, please contact me at: [email protected].
I hope my mentioning this does not hurt you in any way. That certainly is not my intention. I would like to see one of John's family members have this period specific memorial of him.

Sincerely, and in peace,
Lem Mason
Louisville, Ky

John W. Kennedy

I wore a bracelet for Capt. Kennedy as a young college student, and as I was organizing my pictures to give to my children, I came across this picture of him. The back read: 1 LT John William Kennedy, USAF Undergraduate Pilot Training, Selma, Ala (Craig AF Base), dated Oct 1969-Oct 1970. I discovered the VVMF website and was a able to learn about his life and service. To his mom and brother, and all who knew him personally, I send my heartfelt condolences and hope that having been able to put him to rest in Arlington Cemetery has brought you some comfort.
