At Vietnam Memorial, An Unlikely Bond Began
The unlikely bond between a nurse and one of her many patients began at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. Ann Remington was with her brother, Army pilot Scott Saboe, when he got a POW/MIA bracelet — on it, the name of an Army airman who went missing in action in Vietnam. Scott died a few months later when his helicopter was shot down in Iraq. Ann found the bracelet in his things and kept it. Years later, the nurse was interviewing a new patient, World War II veteran Ted Soyland, and the name sounded familiar.
