Bracelet

As a teenager, I wore the bracelet of Captain Clem. I saved it and wear it every Veteran's Day to honor him and so he may not be forgotten.

My namesake

I was also a US Marine but almost 30 years after he went MIA. I can't help but think, I must be somehow related. If only remotely. Thank you for your service and semper fi Marine.

Pow/mia bracelet

I have worn Capt Thomas Clem's bracelet for 40 years, always praying for his eventual return home. I have it displayed in my home along with the service flags of The Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, and our flag of The United States of America. Eternal be his memory and God bless him for his ultimate sacrifice to our country. My dad and my 5 brothers served our country proudly in the armed forces and a brother in law served 2 tours in Vietnam.

Lives On In Our Lives

For 45 years I've continued to move the POW-MIA bracelet bearing Capt. Thomas Clem's name from place to place, state to state, home to home. I can see from other posts, I'm not alone. How strange to be part of a group connected only by loss during a "coming of age," for many of us. While I respect and honor Capt Clem and so many who gave their lives in service during the Vietnam War, the experience defined me as a "Peacenik," a label I hold with equal honor. I continue to pray for a time when War is no longer the answer to solve territorial, economic, and human conflict. Sadly the wars go on and many die.
