What are the Vietnam War Bracelets?
The POW/MIA bracelets were initially introduced in the late 1960's by now-defunct organization, Voices of Vital America (VIVA. The purpose of the bracelet is to increase public awareness about the Americans still prisoner, missing and unaccounted for from the Vietnam War.
The bracelets are 1/2 inch wide, bearing name rank, service branch, country and date of loss.
The cost of the bracelets were $2.50 for the nickel-plated bracelets and $3.00 for a copper bracelets. On Veterans Day, November 11, 1970, the bracelet program was officially kicked ouf and public response grew so quickly, up to 12,000 requests for bracelets were coming in daily.
