Will never forget his sacrifice.

I was a USAF Security Policeman at PhuCat AB, RVN in 1971. I wear Doug's bracelet every day, as a reminder of his sacrifice. I'm 70 years old now and when I look at his bracelet I can see his call to duty and unselfish sacrifice in a hostile jungle many years ago. Always and forever young!

POW Braclet

I bought a bracelet at School in 1972 with St.Sgt.Charles King and the Christmas date he went missing. I still have the bracelet and I am 62. I have often wondered about this Soldier and now many years later I have a face with a name. OMG! how wonderful is that. My late husband served in NAM and I want to thank all the Soldiers living and that have passed for Serving and Protecting our country!

I have a bracelet with his name on it too

What a selfless person he must have been to go out on Christmas Day to recover the downed pilot. I have his bracelet from my high school days. Over the years I wondered if he was found; what was his story. I am thankful that after all these years I now know. I am thankful for his service. I am saddened that he has not made it home yet. Perhaps one day he will return. I will cherish my bracelet and remember the sacrifice that this brave young man made.

Thank you!

I would like to thank everyone who has contributed to the memory of my brother. Doug and I had the same mothers but different fathers. Our mother passed away just after Doug's 15th birthday and just before my 4th birthday. Doug took care of me after our mother passed...some have said that we were inseparable. I will never forget that Christmas Eve, December 24th 1968, back in Muscatine, Iowa when we received word Doug was missing. I have the last letter I received from him dated November 24th 1968. Sherry, Jeff and I had a nice 50th year Memorial at Sherry's house in Muscatine, Iowa on December 24th 2018. I have asked for Doug's Geneva Convention Card, which is held at a Hanoi War Museum, to be returned to his family. We all still to this day, pray for a full accounting and for Doug's remains to be returned home. I miss my brother still to this day. I am humbled by those of you who have left remembrances of Doug and those of you who still wear his bracelet, God bless you all. So that others may live, Barry
