You were my bracelet

I always wondered what you looked like, and wanted to know more about you. I was only 11 or 12 when I started wearing your cracelet...now, I'm 56, and I still remember your name. Thank you Wall of Remembrance, and thanks to Google for letting me find it.

Lt Col Herbert Lunsford

I was 11 years old in 1973 and was given my POW bracelet of Lt. Col. Herbert Lunsford from my oldest brother that had just enlisted in the U.S.Army in 1972. I never took it off until it finally had bent so many times it began to crack. My brother sent it in (somewhere?? I dont know where). My brother taught me to be SO proud of our men that we lost and prayed for over in Viet Nam and I am blessed that I was shown how to honor our service men and women. I hope Col. Lunsford's family have found peace in his service and our nation's loss of dedicated men like him. Thank you for allowing me to show my support of our men.

Will Always Remember

Back in the early 70's my Granny gave me a POW/MIA bracelet and your name was on it . I wore that bracelet till after many years it broke in half and now it is in my Angel box and has been for many years.... in 2001 i think it was the traveling wall came to Abilene , Texas where i was living and we went out to visit it and to my amazement your name was there .... I remember crying ..All those years i knew the name of a man who i had never met but i knew he had family and made the ultimate sacrifice for his country .... Today i saw your name come up on a site and again my heart was touched ... I will never forget you and what you did for your country .

Remembering An American Hero

Dear Colonel Herbert Lamar Lunsford, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter

I Have Not Forgotten.

In the early 1970's I received a memory bracelet with Lt. Col. Herbert Lunsford's name on it. I wore the bracelet for years, until it broke,from the wear. I have prayed for him and his family for a long time. It saddens me to see that his body was never found. I hope and pray that his family has found some closure and peace.
