1. His POW bracelet
I was walking past my chest-of-drawers and for some odd reason after noticing his bracelet sitting there, I decided to look up his name on the computer. I was amazed what I found and very excited. I have had the bracelet since the 1970's. I was on NAS Noris 1966-1970 and saw the Enterprise come in. I probably bumped into once. Blessings.
