Description


Gene Kranz’s silver-tone ‘POW/MIA’ bracelet which he wore in the Mission Operation Control
Room as lead flight director during the historic Apollo program. The bracelet measures 2.75″ x 2″ x .5″ and is engraved with the name of a missing Vietnam War soldier: “Maj. Harrison Klinck, 11-1-67.” Included with the bracelet is an envelope annotated in black felt tip by Kranz, “POW/MIA Bracelet,” and a printed article from Carol Bates Brown relaying the origin and history of the bracelet. In fine condition.

Accompanied by a signed certificate of authenticity from Farthest Reaches owner Stephen Hankow, which reads, in part: “The silver colored ‘POW-MIA’ bracelet that accompanies this certificate was owned and worn in the MOCR by Eugene F. Kranz throughout the Apollo Program. In Gene’s own words, ‘my POW-MIA Bracelet that I and several other Flight Directors wore continuously during Apollo…Ed Harris wore a copy of mine during the movie. It was worn during all missions. If you look closely, the edges of the bracelet show wear thru the plating and the edge got sharp.’ This bracelet has remained continuously in the possession of Gene Kranz until being given to Farthest Reaches…If this bracelet could talk, just imagine the stories it would be able to tell.”
