Tonight, Judy Tilton, a real estate broker in Laconia, will be meeting Senator John McCain. However, this will not a normal meeting because Ms. Tilton has been wearing McCain's POW bracelet for many years. Tilton told The Citizen that "She remembers when McCain came home from Vietnam. "I can clearly remember him at the top of the [airplane] stairs with his crutches," said Tilton, who said her family celebrated every POW return." Tilton received a letter of appreciation from Mrs. McCain and continues to wear the McCain bracelet, this time it has a star to signify his return.
