MIA Bracelet

I started wearing MIA bracelets continuously starting in 1980-1981. I purchased Roger's at the VFW in Mankato, MN and wore it really 24x7 for the 8 or so years before it wore through and broke. I wore his bracelet while attending basic training in 1981 and Airborne School in the mid 1980s. While my drill sergeants respected my gesture (all were Vietnam vets), rules are rules and I had to do literally thousands of pushups as punishment for my refusal to take the bracelet off. If you have ever been to airborne school, you'll understand when I say it was 15 trips to the gig pit.

I still have the bracelet today, some 35 years later. I actually was able to find his Mother's address in St. Paul to give the pieces to, but procrastinated too long and lost track of her.
