"The necklace is white gold, and he wore it all the time when he wasn't on duty. The Pentagon sent it to me. They cleaned it up the best they could. They also sent one of his pins that he wore on the ship, and a dime. That's all they had. I put his medal on the shelf and I keep the necklace in a box on my dresser. I keep it close to me." --Jewell Lyons, mother
