I have the bracelet with terrys name on it from the time I was just a kid back in the seventies....when I visited DC I saw his name on the vietnam memorial ...and said a prayer to bless his soul and all the other who senselessly lost their lives in that war. God Bless.

I was just now looking at my bracelet with Terry Alford's name and decided to check once again for any information. I am so sorry there is none, but if Terry's family is reading this, I want them to know that I have never forgotten him. I visited Vietnam when my daughter taught there several years ago, and Terry's name remains in my heart. Blessings on you.
