The bracelet

I also wore Colonel Campbell's bracelet and came upon it again when going through my "special" drawer of various keepsakes. My father and mother are both buried at Arlington. My dad was a bombardier in a B-17 and was shot down on Oct. 10 1943 over Bremen, Germany. He was gravely wounded but survived after 7 weeks in a German hospital and then18 months in a prison camp for officers. He eventually rose to Colonel in the Army reserves in the 70's I believe. The Bloody 100th bomb group was recently memorialized in Masters of the Air, an 8 part series on Apple +. Howard "Hambone" Hamlton, later a Ph.D. and professor of Electrical Engineering. So happy that Colonel Campbell finally got to come home. God Bless you all.
