I hope these messages are sent to family members. As was posted, the person who wore his bracelet is trying to find a family member to give it to.

I wore his bracelet for years. Just found it in my attic today. Had to find out what happened to him. God Rest his soul. I would surely send this home. Thank you

I was the orderly room clerk for the 357th Tactical Fighter Squadron at Takhli and was responsible for typing up the paperwork for the awards and decorations that Capt. Ammon received after he was shot down. He was a great man and well liked by all members of the 357 TFS.
