POW bracelet

I have carried Sgt James Ravencrafts POW bracelet since 1973 while in High school. I have visited the Vietnam wall in Washington DC and have a picture of my son pointing to his name on the wall. Would love to send a picture text to some family member of both of these. I think of his sacrifice often especially during Memorial holidays...God Bless Him.

James A. Ravencraft, wore his bracelet

I wore the POW-MIA bracelet with his name on it for years. I didn't remove it until the war was over. I still have it. My first one was made of heavy metal, after that one broke, I requested a replacement and got the more flexible metal kind, as seen in the other photo. My father's birthday was the day he went missing.

I didn't find out until the internet came out that he was found KIA shortly after he went missing. I had written to his family through VIVA, the organization that made the bracelets, but I never heard anything. A few years ago, I had posted somewhere on the internet that I had the bracelet, and a gentleman contacted me. He was a distant relative of James, and had also served in the military. His name was James Ravencraft, also. He had contacted James's mother and spoke briefly with her. We cooresponded a short time until unfortunately he passed away. He had been working on the Ravencraft family tree, and included a picture of my bracelet in his writings. My son is a Navy veteran, and my father is a Korean Vet with the Army. James, your bravery will not be forgotten. Sending love to the Ravencraft family.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SSGT James Alvin Ravencraft, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, Sir

Curt Carter
