I just read something about Vietnam Bracelets not too long ago and I knew my mom had one. She passed away a few years ago. She would have received hers when I was a baby. The name on it is LCDR Robert Flynn. 8/21/67. I was born in Oct of 67. I used to look at it all the time when I was little. I guess she never knew what became of him. But I got curious and went digging to find it and retrieve his name. After a quick Google search I found that he was shot down over China and held (mostly in solitary) in a Chinese prison for over 5 years. He made it home, but died of a heart attack on May 15, 2014. I wish I would have come across it again before he and my mom died. She would have liked to know he made it back. My dad, an Army WWII vet just recently passed. I wished I could have told him too. https://www.nytimes.com/2014/05/25/us/robert-j-flynn-shot-down-in-vietnam-war-dies-at-76.html
