You are in my heart and will always be remembered

Merlin,
Your bracelet helped me deal with my PTSD problems. I wore the bracelet for many years, when I was able to deal with most of my problems, I gave it to another Marine who I felt needed it more. I visited the Traveling Vietnam Wall today and was able to walk up to the wall, I had tried two previous times in Washington, but started having panic attacks and had to walk away. I saw your name and two other Marines who's bracelet I have worn since I came back. Any place I went I rubbed your bracelet and said here we are Merlin, I'm here for the both of us. Read the article about your coming back, thank God you have finally home.
Thanks for all your help,

Your Brother Marine,
Polo Aldaz
USMC 3rd Marine Div. 1969
