Demand exceeds supply Richard Keeton, POW/MIA chairman for the Washington State Veterans of Foreign Wars, says the organization can't keep up with requests for bracelets of military personnel. Keeton, holding the bracelet for Lt. Col. Clifford M. Acree, shot down on Jan. 17, has 350 bracelets for personnel listed as missing in action or prisoners of war, but he has received requests for several thousand.
