In 1975, Ken McCoy put a silver bracelet on his arm.
Since that time, he has only removed it if medically required.
McCoy is honoring the memory of Staff Sgt. Charles King, a prisoner of war who has been missing since Christmas Day 1968. McCoy doesn't know King, but he feels connected.
McCoy, 69, of Elkton, served two tours of duty in Vietnam. "I signed up to go into the Navy when I was in high school. I volunteered," said McCoy. "My grandfather was in World War I.

He maintained the weapons on those ships.
