found object

This is a photo friday picture. I found the bracelet a couple of years ago after moving into my house. I kept it because it seemed to contain so many stories. Who is PFC Cochran and what happened to him? He went missing in action, but is there a chance he's still around somewhere? And what about the story of the bracelet? Someone must have cared enough to display it at some point, but then how did it end up hanging from a nail in a garage? For me it also serves as a cultural relic, a remote symbol of the past, though I'm sure there are those for whom it remains very present.
