Today, I was clearing out a few really old boxes I had stored in my basement. In one of them I found an old POW-MIA bracelet I wore back in 1971 at an anti-war rally. The bracelet listed the full name of a missing U.S. soldier from the Vietnam War, Thomas Nelson Moe. One of my old high school teachers handed out these bracelets to all of her students, and everyone in the group I went to the rally with had a bracelet with a different POW-MIA’s name on it. When I found the bracelet today, curiosity got the best of me and I Googled ‘Thomas Nelson Moe.’ To my surprise, I found his name on a safely returned POW list, and several inspiring articles and interviews about his life thereafter. He returned home safely in 1973. MMT
