POW bracelet

I remember buying Capt Lyon’s POW bracelet at a shopping mall in 1970. Some folks had a table set up selling them and giving out information. My husband had returned from the war in June of 1970. I knew his father lived in Indianapolis. I prayed for Capt Lyon’s return. I am 71 now. Capt Lyon’s would be the same age. I honor those who served.

Looking for family

I have a bracelet I got as a teenager with James M. Lyon on it. I am 64 now and would love to see a family member have it. I am from Indianapolis, but now live in Florida. Please contact me at [email protected]
Thank you, Paula
