Frank's POW/MIA bracelet

As one of Frank's nieces/nephews, I am so grateful that so many people were touched by "Uncle Frank". I remember him well. He was fun and loving when he visited us (my mother was his sister, and she had 9 children). If anyone has a bracelet, please contact me. We are trying to recall his bracelet.
