I too had his bracelet and wore it faithfully. I had seen in the paper that he was home in Mesa. I still have the newspaper and the bracelet if anyone in his family would like it! I'd be happy to send it to you!

I wore Col. Bomar's POW bracelet all through high school, and didn't know he'd made it home till just a few years ago.
Thank you for your service, Col Bomar. I will remember your name always.

I remember Jack Bomar from our days at OTS in the early 1960s. We were fellow Flight Training Officers. He was a superb officer and an accomplished athlete. OTS had two bowling teams in a 16 team league at LacKland AFB. His team and mine always competed against one another, with his team claiming 1st place and our team finishing a close 2nd. I played golf with him several times and once as a partner during a tournament -- he was one fine golfer. He was also very popular with the Officer Trainees in his squadron. I wore one of his POW bracelets during the time he was at Hanoi. He will be missed.

I, too, received his name on a POW bracelet. As a young girl, I had saved my money to purchase it and had managed to keep it all these years. I came across it a few weeks ago and I decided to take it with me on a trip to Washington, DC. On this trip I was able to learn that he made it home safely, yet recently had passed away. Our group was visiting the Vietnam Memorial on Veteran's day. I struck up a conversation with a group of Vietnam Veterans, told them I had Colonel Bomar's bracelet with me and offered to give it to one of the Vets. The Vet received it was in the Air Force, just like Colonel Bomar. The bracelet is safe in the hands of another who served. Thank you for your service, Colonel Bomar.
