Blah, blah, blah




For all of us that are old enough to remember, during the Vietnam War and for a while afterwards, it was very popular to wear little metal bracelets that had a soldiers name engraved on them The names were of soldiers that were either POW or MIA in the war.

As a kid, I wore one that contained the name of a family friend who was shot down over Vietnam. He was captured and later released. A few of us in our little circle wore his name bracelet for years until he came home. I have always wondered if there was a way to get those bracelets now. There is.

Take a look at On the site the founder has not just bracelets for soldiers but also for those fallen in recent terrorist attacks. He also offers customized bracelets for anyone else. The site maintains a list of all of those who are still MIA or KIA in either wars or attacks on US soil. They have given over $74,000 to the families of those effected, as well.

I am going to order one as a way of remembering what someone else gave for my freedom.

I remember View Nam * I lived in Hawaii during the latter part of the war * the shipment of many of the troops when through Pearl Harbour and Hickham AFB. 

I wish they'd show ceremonies from Punchbowl National cemetary on TV * different nationalities in the same place for the same honor~
