Not Forgotten

I have not forgotten you. I chair the Adoption Committee for The National League of Families of Prisoners of War and Missing in Action in Southeast Asia. We will always remember the 1,889 Americans still unaccounted for in Southeast Asia and the thousands of others that lost their lives. We will not stop our efforts until all of you are home where you belong.

We need to reach the next generation so that they will carry on when our generation is no longer able. To do so, we are attempting to locate photographs of all the missing. If you are reading this remembrance and have a photo and/or memory of this missing American that you would like to share for our project, please contact me at:

We never forget

I have had Capt. Chavez's POW-MIA bracelet since I was born, in Nov. 1970. My parents passed this great honor to me and I hold it dearly.

I wore his bracelet too

I was in the 9th grade and sent away for a MIA/POW bracelet. I wore Capt. Chavez's name until the bracelet broke in two from my trying to make it fit my wrist. I have kept the bracelet in a memory box of special items at my parents' home. They live in Maryland and I have been able to make an annual visit to the Wall since the Wall was created. When I am there, I always look up Captain Chavez.

An honor to wear the braclet

When I was little my family all wore the POW bracelet. I was honored to have worn the bracelet with Gary Chavez's name engraved on it. I prayed for him and his family. He will continue to be in my prayers.

A Man of Honor

I wear the man named Gary A. Chavez's M.I.A. bracelet. I have never taken it off. I bought the braclet when I traveled to Washington D.C. for the national Boy Scout Jamboree. I wear it in remembrance of him and everyday at least one of my friends ask me what it is and I explain to them what the bracelet is for. Then they continue to ask questions and the final question is "why do you wear it.. did you know the guy?" and I respond with "I wish I had known him....."
