Remembering still ...

A year ago I engaged Main Street readers in the support of the 1,700+ still missing in action and POWs unaccounted for from Vietnam. Nearly 70 local citizens purchased the iconic stainless steel POW bracelets that so many of us had in the 1970s. Today is National POW/MIA Recognition Day. An organization of families of these Americans is HERE.
Last year when the box of bracelets arrived I was overcome as I held them in my hands (pictured), knowing that each one represented a real person ... a brave service member who was loved and missed and had been for decades. Please take a moment today and remember them all.
