Why Wear
My original POW/MIA bracelet was purchased in or around 1972 when I was in high school and was also for Captain Dean P. St Pierre. Like many folks, I actively protested the Vietnam War, but I also fiercely supported our military men and women and continue to do so today.
 
My husband is a volunteer fireman, and I think, like most firefighters, September 11 and the loss of all of the firefighters really resounds with him.
 
I knew several people that perished in the World Trade Center, but I knew Lynne Morris the best. We attended the same high school and sat in several classes together.
 
Donations To Charities for Families of Heroes and Victims of Terrorism

By donating $2.00 for every product purchased on the Memorial Bracelets web site, over $175,000 has been donated to the following charities:


Yellow Ribbon Fund - Welcoming our Injured Service Members Home The Yellow Ribbon Fund was created in early 2005 to assist our injured service members and their families while they recuperate at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center and the National Naval Medical Center. Their mission began when the father of an injured Marine introduced two of their volunteers to staff at Walter Reed and Bethesda Naval and they told them what needs were not met by other donors.

Fisher House Foundation - Helping Military Families Because members of the military and their families are stationed worldwide and must often travel great distances for specialized medical care, Fisher House Foundation donates "comfort homes," built on the grounds of major military and VA medical centers. These homes enable family members to be close to a loved one during the hospitalization for an unexpected illness, disease, or injury. There is at least one Fisher House at every major military medical center to assist families in need and to ensure that they are provided with the comforts of home in a supportive environment.

Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund - Serving Those Who Preserve Our Freedom Department of Defense statistics indicate over 4,000 Marines have been injured in Operation Iraqi Freedom. The Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund was formed to provide supplemental assistance to US Marines, sailors, and their families as they face their road to recovery.

Children of Fallen Soldiers Relief Fund The Children of Fallen Soldiers Relief Fund helps support surviving U.S. Military children and spouses who have either lost a loved one as a result of the Afghanistan or Iraq wars or have a disabled parent or spouse who was injured during a deployment to either war by providing them with College Grants.

Freedom Alliance The Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund honors the bravery and dedication of Americans in our armed forces who have sacrificed life or limb by providing educational scholarships to their dependent children. The Freedom Alliance has awarded over $250,000 in scholarship aid to hundreds of deserving students who have had a parent sacrifice for this nation.

Twin Towers Orphan Fund - There are still lives to be saved The Twin Towers Orphan Fund is a charitable trust fund designed to benefit those children who were orphaned (lost one or both parents) in the national disasters of Sept. 11, 2001. These are the children of those who lost their lives in the explosions and collapses of the several buildings in the World Trade Center, at the Pentagon and among the passengers and crews aboard the four hijacked airliners.
The purpose of the fund is to provide for long-term education, health care, and other primary assistance to children currently under the age of 21 (or enrolled in accredited institutions of higher learning) orphaned in the terrorist-caused disasters of September 11, 2001.

Families of POW*MIA - Prisoner of War and Missing In Action The Families of POW's and MIA's sole purpose is to obtain the release of all prisoners, the fullest possible accounting for the missing and repatriation of all recoverable remains of those who died serving our nation during the Vietnam War.

There are now 1,645 Americans listed by the Defense POW/Missing Personnel Office (DPMO) as missing and unaccounted-for since the end of the Vietnam War in 1975.  Of the unaccounted-for 1,645 personnel, 90% were lost in Vietnam or in areas of Laos and Cambodia under Vietnam’s wartime control: Vietnam–1,276 (VN-469, VS-807); Laos–309; Cambodia–53; PRC territorial waters–7; more than 450 were over-water losses.

Rolling Thunder Rolling Thunder ®, Inc. is committed to helping American veterans from all wars, but their major function is to publicize POW-MIA issues: To educate the public that many American prisoners of war were left behind after all previous wars and to help correct the past and to protect future veterans from being left behind should they become prisoners of war-missing in action.

Vietnam Veterans of America Logo Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA) was founded in 1978. In 1986 the organization received it's congressional charter and it remains the only congressionally chartered veterans service organization devoted exclusively to improving the lives of those who served in uniform during this nation's longest and most divisive war.
They are also helping the veterans who are coming home wounded or disabled from the Gulf War, Afghan War, and Iraq War with benefits counseling and other essential services to help them rebuild their lives after wartime service. VAA is making sure that VA healthcare and other benefits aren't the victims of short-sighted budget cuts that forget the service of our new veterans, and neglect the sacrifices they continue to make even after they come home.

Disabled American Veterans With more than 1.4 million members, Disabled American Veterans is an organization of disabled veterans who are focused on building better lives for disabled veterans and their families. The organization accomplishes this goal by providing free assistance to veterans in obtaining benefits and services earned through their military service. It is fully funded through its membership dues and public contributions. It is not a government agency and receives no government funds.

Patriot Guard Riders The Patriot Guard Riders are a diverse amalgamation of motorcycle riders from across the nation that have an unwavering respect for those who risk their very lives for America's freedom and security. Their main mission is to attend the funeral services of fallen American heroes as invited guests of the family. Each mission they undertake is designed to show sincere respect for our fallen heroes, their families, and their communities, and shield the mourning family and their friends from interruptions created by any protestor or group of protestors through strictly legal and non-violent means.

Special Operations Warrior Foundation LogoThe Special Operations Warrior Foundation provides full scholarship grants and educational and family counseling to the surviving children of special operations personnel who die in operational or training missions and immediate financial assistance to severely wounded special operations personnel and their families.
