The bracelet was one of hundreds he had returned to him after he was repatriated. The date Smith was shot down, Oct. 25, 1967, is inscribed on the bracelet, along with his rank and name. The bracelets help keep the memory of POWs and those missing in action. (U.S Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Beaux Hebert)
