Thank you for remembering our lost – so many people have forgotten
In rememberance of Cpl. Jimmy Worth, Sub Unit One, 1st ANGLICO, USMC.
MIA Vietnam 1972.
Prayers to Jimmy’s family and all families of POW & MIA warriors.
Stranded in Sonoma
I remember wearing a metal bracelet with the name of a POW/MIA from Vietnam. Wish I still had it. Can’t remember his name but he was a Lt.JG in the Navy. I do remember that he came home during Operation Homecoming in 1973.
Here’s my tribute to those that fought in Vietnam.
@Stranded — I, too, wore a bracelet in the 70s. I think I still have it somewhere as I would never have intentionally thrown it out.
What a beautiful tribute! I first saw the Wall when we were in DC for the 8/28 event. Words cannot describe the emotions that flowed.
@jclady — Thank you. Sometimes, when I listen to a piece of music I can “hear the pictures” in it. Sometimes I get lucky.
I know I didn’t throw out my bracelet. I’m pretty sure my mother kept it. But she’s gone now and we didn’t find them in her effects. I would like to have them all (my brothers wore them too) and make a shadow box with them. A large reproduction of the Vietnam Service Ribbon in the middle surrounded by the bracelets with the names visible. That would look nice.
Thank you to all for remembering those are still unaccounted for. I still have my braclet and would like to mention the name on it.

I do not know his disposition. We can only pray that he has returned to his family since.
God Bless our veterans.
@Bayouwolf; He was released in 73.

Col. Floyd W. Richardson from Alaska was on my bracelet. I went and found his name on the Wall in Washington when we lived in Virginia and took a picture of it. His remains were finally brought home in 1989.
ONLY in America could a draft dodging, communistic, muslim sympathizer sleep in the White House while a homeless vet sleeps in a cardboard box!!!
