I wore his bracelet

Even now, these 45+ years later, I have his name and date memorized. So sorry for your loss. I prayed for him each night. At least now I know what became of him.
So sorry.

POW/MIA

I've had my bracelet since I was a child
I wore it for years and years
Periodically checking to see if he had been found
I came across it today
If there is a relatively out there that would like to have it
I'd gladly send it to you
Donald E. Paxton was a big part of my childhood and teen years

A friend of Donald Paxton‘s daughter

I will never forget when you found out your dad was MIA. I have never forgotten him and when I went back to visit family in Virginia I went to The Wall and visited with him and got a rub of his name. I thought he was so handsome , and will forever be grateful for his service and your sacrifice. I also wore his bracelet for years.

Thank you to all that wore his bracelet

My daughter just found this website and sent me the link.
I thank all who wore my dad's bracelet and posted notes here.
I have been in touch with many who wore his bracelet and made many friendships over the decades.
While remains were found and returned, only one was large enough to yield DNA, which matched Col. Macko, the navigator. All unidentified bone fragments are interred in a double grave at Arlington Cemetery; the identified one is interred in an individual grave for Col Macko.
Thanks again to all that wore his bracelet and remembered him.
