I think that I can fill in information about the bracelet

I was about 16 at the time...now 64. I applied for and received Herbert's bracelet and wore it through college days. I placed the MIA star on it. In the early 80's I let it go with some other jewelry. I regret it to this day. I have all of Herbert's bio and think/pray for him everyday. Thank GOD for his heroism. To his family, I hope you find peace. I do not do social media so glad to have this venue to tell you. THANK YOU! As I do not do social websites, if you want to give me an avenue to contact you, I will visit this site again. I grew up in Wilmington, DE and now reside in Northeast TN. God bless you and all that serve. My uncle did as well flying over Vietnam and Cambodia. He passed at age 63 of ALS. Take care.

From One Veteran to Another

I never met you; but, I knew you through my mother. Your uncle was my grandfather, John Calvin Lunsford.
My mother told a story of how your mother waited on her front porch for you to return home. She believed you would. That always brought tears to my eyes.
In the summer of 1986, I told my mother I was going to see " The Wall" in D.C. since I had just reported to my duty station on the USS Shenandoah AD44. She asked me for a rub of your name and I did. I know she treasured that.
Thank you for "carrying the torch" and "walking the wall".
When I see the Blue Angels fly, from Maxwell AFB, I will continue to think of you.
Shalom brother in arms
