Why Wear
I have a friend that fought in Vietnam and came home. I remembered that there used to be bracelets to wear for POWs. In honor of my friend, Michael Tank, the Vietnam vet, I decided to get one to remember that not everyone came home.
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.
I wanted a bracelet because I wore a POW bracelet for years for my Vietnam soldier, he was MIA after the return. I checked on him occasionally via the net and learned recently that he is felt to have died in a plane crash that was witnessed.
Killed in Action Memorial Bracelets and Dog Tags

In the 1970's, we wore Prisoner of War, POW Bracelets and Missing in Action, MIA Bracelets bearing the name of a captured or lost soldier. We did this to keep this person in our hearts and minds, even if we did not know them personally. We proudly wore these POW/MIA bracelets, and some still do, as a symbol of hope that the POW's and MIA's would return home to their families.

Today, we also keep others in our memories... Victims and Heroes of Terrorism. To keep the memory alive of those who have died innocently at the hands of terrorists or fighting terrorism, we now also wear Memorial Bracelets. By wearing a Memorial Bracelet, we show our patriotism and offer our moral and financial support to the families of these Victims and Heroes of Terrorism.

$2.00 from the sale of each bracelet is donated to charities that support the families of the heroes and victims of terrorism.
