    Inscribed with a WW2 Veterans name, and military ID number.

    Research shows he had no kids, died in 1982.

    Had 2 brothers, youngest still lives in the town next to me.

    I know he wasn’t sure about the guy knocking on his door, but when I started telling the story of how I found this bracelet with his Uncle Hoye’s ’ name on it, suddenly he opened up with details of his late Uncles life.
    I’ll spare y’all the details of the Vet, let’s just say he was fondly remembered, and not forgotten at all.

    When I told the old timer that the bracelet belongs to his family, and all I wanted was a handshake and lead us into prayer, his response was classic...,

    “Son, I don’t cry, but if I did, I would”


    He almost got me, ain’t gonna lie.

    So after that, I got the permission for his 100+ year old homestead, a knee-high grass and iron mess, but I squeezed out two wheats, so that’s good.

    Thanks for looking, and may your returns be gratifying.

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    You have a great heart. A goodly number of people would have kept it since it's probably sterling. I vote HONORABLE MENTION also.

    As a veteran, what you did should be on the evening news. Give your local news a call or send them this post, bet it gets a warm reception. Excellent post !
