PBPost: Bracelet allows Martin woman to close circle on Vietnam POW story

Pollard received two Silver Stars and two purple hearts for his gallantry as an F-105 pilot of the 13th Tactical Fighter Squadron, Korat Royal Thai Air Base, Thailand, in action over North Vietnam the night he was shot down.  He survived torture and six years of hard life as a POW.

The Palm Beach Post’s award-winning blogger, Sally Swartz, writes about the heart-warming story of a Prisoner of War bracelet, engraved with the name of a POW, that was worn by a Martin County resident:

“Like others, Myra Galoci, who now lives in Jensen Beach, had begun to doubt and question U.S. involvement in Vietnam.

“But that doubt did not extend to the prisoners of war (POWs) and men missing in action (MIAs). When Galoci learned of a nationwide campaign to wear a bracelet engraved with the name of a POW or MIA, she joined thousands of men, women and children who wanted to remember those whose fate was unknown.”
