LTJG Lee D. Benson - I first wore your bracelet 40 years ago and wear it still.

I never had the opportunity to meet you. I really wish I had. I was only 10 years old (1969) when I received a POW/MIA bracelet with your name on it. I wore it throughout the war secretly hoping that it was just a made-up name used to sell bracelets and not a real person. I broke down in tears, when as an adult woman, I read your name on the wall at the Punchbowl National Cemetery in Oahu, extinguishing all my hopes that you hadn't really been lost to Viet Nam. I wear your bracelet on August 17th, (your birthday), on March 17th (the day you went missing) on July 4th and every Memorial and Veterans Day. I still pray for you and your loved ones. I hope with all of my heart that someday you will be returned back home. No, we never met, but your name will always be in my heart for as long as I live. Thank you for your bravery.

MIA Bracelet

Thoughout the years I've wondered about the fate of the young man whose bracelet I wore (and still have) as a very small child. I'm saddened to find out his fate wasn't what I'd hoped.

NATIVE AMERICAN PRAYER

It is said a man hasn't died as long as he is remembered. This prayer is a way for families, friends and fellow veterans to remember our fallen brothers and sisters. Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight, I am the stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die
