Dear Mary,
 Ask and Ye shall receive and Lo and Behold! I received Captain Wortham's  MIA bracelet today. I am overcome, once again. And more so re-reading the letter his wife sent me
in 1972.  His daughter Melissa Lynn was born in 1967 October and Captain Worthham was MIA in December of that year.  I have attached the letter in this emails.

Thank you so much for all you do.  Sincerely Yours, Karen.
