POW/MIA BRACELET DISPLAY - PALM SPRINGS AIR MUSEUM

I am the Curator of the POW/MIA Bracelet Display in the Vietnam Hangar of the Palm Springs Air Museum in Palm Springs, California where we now have over two thousand bracelets honoring POWs, MIAs and KIAs and would be honored to include your bracelet in our Display should you have one. If you no longer have your bracelet or wish to keep yours or are an immediate family member (spouse, fiancé, sibling, child, grandchild, cousin, niece, nephew, or close friend) I can order one for the Display in your name with funds donated by our Museum visitors.

A silver bracelet worn with pride

Our mom recently passed away and in going through her things, we found her silver bracelet with your name on it. Our entire family wore bracelets with missing heroes' names on them. I just researched your name and tears came to my eyes when I read of your fate.
Your home town is a mere 20 miles from our family home.
Your bracelet will be kept with all of the others for our grandchildren to learn about heroes like yourself.
RIP, LTJG Benson

Birthday Remembrance

Remembering you today on your date of birth. I still wear my POW/MIA bracelet in your honor every day. Got it when I was just a kid. Had hopes of some day meeting you. Maybe on the other side. Thank you for your sacrifice & service. RIP LTJG Lee Benson

Lee Bensen's Nephew

I'm Lee's nephew; my mother was his sister Joyce, and I grew up in the same household as Lee with my grandparents and my mom until he went in the Navy. I still very vividly remember watching the Casualty Officer walk up the pathway to our front door to inform us his plane had gone done in the Gulf of Tonkin and he was MIA. I was seven. I also have letters so many of you sent that wore his POW-MIA bracelet and I can't tell you how much our family appreciated your outpouring of love and faith. I've had the opportunity to meet the families of Cmdr. Donald Hubbs, Randall Barber and Thomas Nightingale and they are wonderful people who are also deeply moved by remembrances of their loved ones. Anyone wishing more info on Lee is free to reach out to me at gregestes5 at yahoo dot com.
