Bracelet

I'm not sure why we have this bracelet. Not sure if my parents knew him or this was just a way of remembering and honoring his life.

Dad's wingman on 6/30/67

My dad was on Legrande's wing the day they both dropped in on a bombing run. It was surely the saddest day of his naval carrier to date. Unfortunately I never was told the details about Legrande's loss, the recounting of the events forever too painful for my dad to discuss. My dad has since passed, but I did find some letters home in which he mentions the events of 6/30/67. Per his letter it seems Legrande was hit and lost that day, although I assume without 100% certainty he was designated MIA. Several images of Legrande are included in a video I made of my dad's Vietnam experience and can be viewed at https://youtu.be/rQqUhS_2xnk
