When the POW bracelets were popular in the 60's, I wore one with Nerdy Wright's name engraved on it. Still have it.

Bracelet

Remembering you who fought to save our country, thank you. I still have your mia bracelet and will keep it until maybe your family claims it. Two of my brothers were in Viet Nam but they did come home, maybe not as they once were but they did. Thank you again, sir

Final Mission of MAJ Jerdy A. Wright

MAJ Jerdy A. Wright and MAJ Gordon L. Page were the two pilots of an RF-101C assigned a reconnaissance mission over North Vietnam on March 7, 1966. When their aircraft was about 10 miles northwest of the city of Con Cuong in Nghe An Province, North Vietnam, it went down. Both Wright and Page were declared Missing in Action. In 1973, when 591 American prisoners were released from communist prison camps in Southeast Asia, Page and Wright were not among them. The Vietnamese denied any knowledge of the two. In 1988 the remains of MAJ Wright were returned to US control to be given to his family for burial. In 1989 the remains of MAJ Page were returned to US control to be given to his family for burial.
